Dimensional Asters

I've used the fabulous Heartfelt Delicate Asters from Creative Expressions to create a tag this week.
The background has been coloured with fired brick and salty ocean Distress Inks, applying the inks to a non-stick craft sheet and spritzing with water and then mopping up the colour with my tag.
I stamped the asters five times onto white card, coloured with fired brick Distress Ink and then cut out and layered each flower to give dimension, adding a coordinated button and thread to the centres. I also added machine stitching to the outside edge.
Ruler Ribbon has been added as a stem for my flowers and machine stitched into place. I have then added twine which I have secured into place with a tiny attacher. A large Fancy Key Charm has been added to the bottom of the tag for added interest.
I have added small wooden hearts for further interest along with a small tag stamped with the sentiment 'with love' from Sam Poole's Art Sayings stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Hi Tracy, this tag is just beautiful. It looks so feminine and grungy at the same time. I love the Asters and the tape stem, so cool. I'm loving how you have done the background too. Have a great day hugs Debbie R xx

Hi Tracy
I love this tag with the two colours working so well together. I have this stamp set and dies on order and after seeing this I am so glad I did order them.
Really lovely with the sewing added for more texture
