Flower Tag

Hello and welcome, it's Kay M here with today's post.    I've made a simple tag with the fabulous new floral stamps the Kay recently introduced and have highlighted a few blooms with autumnal colours with Luscious powders.

I painted a grey board tag with black Gee-Sso-Good to get a lovely flat matt background.  This was to compliment the texture of Floral Power stamped in Versafine and heat embossed in clear embossing powder as shown.

Flowers from Wild Poppy, Marigold and Peony and Anemone and Daisy sets were stamped onto white card in Versafine black and embossed in clear embossing powder.   They were then painted with Red, Orange, Rose Bronze and Gold Luscious powders, fussy cut and the raw edges coloured with black pen.  An extra area of card was painted with the same colours, to create a masterboard, and when dry the sentiment from Pegasus was stamped in black and heat embossed in clear embossing powder and cut out.  Repeating the heat embossing process gives unity to the whole project.     

To finish, red and orange Luscious were used to colour some shear ribbon lengths and when dry these were tied to the tag.  The sentiment and flowers were then attached as shown.

The same technique could also be used to make a card for an autumn celebration.   I hope you have been inspired!

Take care,  Kay M
