Trickiest bit about this blog post is spelling Fritillary hahaa… even when I checked it it just didn’t look right! I’ve been playing with Distress Inks again – so the tag was inked with ink using blending sponges (I didn’t note the colours – but looks like Fossilised amber and probably Ground espresso with a bit of Mustard seed to brighten it up). The flower stamp is the Chocolate Baroque Fritillary stamp and the words are from the Chocolate Baroque Artistic Affirmations set.
You can see that fab brickwork in the background – which is from the Rustic Fragments set – ideal if you like your textured backgrounds! When I first stamped it I thought it looked way too dark – but once I started putting the flower on the top and added the Red colouring it really worked. Final white highlights and dotty border with good ole white sharpie marker and it really gives this tag some drama.
Oh an extra note – the wording is all on one stamp – Art with everything – I just inked up the words separate – wiped clean the rest of the stamp (you can also use copy paper to block to make sure you don’t stamp the other words) – and voila you can split your large phrases to fit on a little tag.
have fun crafting
