SPRING BOUQUET

I'm using the Spring Bouquet stamp this week for 100 Proof Press as today feels like a real spring day, AT LAST I might add.
I painted the background of my tag with Fresco Finish Paints hey pesto, added a coat of crackle glaze and then a top coat of snowflake. I was inspired to use the fresh green of peeled paint Distress Ink after walking in my garden this morning, the greens in the garden at the moment as so fresh, I love them.
The Spring Bouquet image has been stamped onto three hearts and then one layered on top of the other for dimension. Each heart has been coloured with peeled paint Distress Ink and flicked with water.
Lace has been added to the top of the tag secured into place with my tiny attacher and I have added with love along with wooden hearts for dimension. One of the hearts has been stamped with the Spring Bouquet image. I love using parts of stamps this way.
A touch more lace to the bottom of my tag along with three small hearts stamped with the Spring Bouquet image and coloured with peeled paint Distress Ink. I have also added two brass keys for further interest.
This picture shows the fabulous dimension achieved by layering the hearts.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Time for me to now do some work in the garden. Until next time, enjoy your weekend. Tracy x x
