I brought you flowers....

I want to share a tag the paints out and had a messy playtime!
I've used PaperArtsy Fresco paints for this, namely Bora Bora, Limelight, Claret and South Pacific. I scraped Bora Bora (the paler blue) and Limelight (pale yellow/green) onto the tag using a palette knife, then added a little Claret (red) here and there. I then overstamped with black ink, as well as printing with South Pacific (dark turquoise) and Claret....
I coloured my Stampotique figure (Pigtails) with the paints too, using a waterbrush.
(The skin was done with Promarkers!)
I punched out a flower from the base of the tag.....
I backed the cut out hole with black card...and then used the punched out flower as an embellishment. I added some coiled wire to the flower, then attached it to my figure....
I typed the phrase, then added it to finish!
I would like to enter this tag into the Stampotique Designers Challenge 94- flowers
Have a great week everyone!
love Trish xx
