Crafty Secrets - Garden Girl tag

Over at the Crafty Secrets blog it's time for their Linky Party which I always intend making things for and then almost always miss the deadline - but not this time!!!

I've used the gorgeous Garden Girls stamp set to make this tag. I used distress inks to colour the background then stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it. Then I stamped some of the flowerpots and watering cans with distress ink straight on to the tag.

The main image was stamped using Memento ink on to watercolour paper and then painted with Derwent Inktense pencils before cutting it out.



I think my mojo may be returning!!!
