Krafty Daisies!

My Dt piece for Creative Expressions this week features these gorgeous daisy stamps by Heartfelt Creations (well actually they're called Asters..but I've never been one for knowing my flower species!!)
I've used them in a simple way today.... but brace yourselves for some all out flower explosions to come, these just lend themselves to being used LOADS on a project! Anyway, I made this.....
Very simple in terms of colour palette, and a nice simple background too!
I took a size 8 Kraft tag, and did some stitching around the sides, and a little in the middle..
I smeared cream paint in places, and splattered black paint over it. That's the extent of the background, told you it was quick!
There are four sizes of lower on the stamp plate, but I chose just three to use this time. I stamped them onto book pages using Archival ink, cut them out then adhered them to the tag...
The stem of the flower is twine, very in keeping with the Kraft look. I also threaded twine through the hole in the tag..
The final tough was a tiny Remnant rub on...LOVE these!!!
Hope you like it, a muted start to what will be a very colourful month with these stamps I think!!
Love Trish xxx
