Good morning everyone! Well Monday has rolled around again and I'm getting ready to begin my week. I just wanted to share a tag I've been working on. Those of you who follow me, know how much I love making flowers and roses are a favorite of mine. I like tags because they can be tucked down inside a gift bag and given to someone special. They take just as much work as a card, but I think they are just in a class of their own.
For my tag, I used the Tim Holtz Alterations die and then ran it though my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder; then I used Ranger Distress Ink to go over some of the raised edges. My roses were made by cutting out petals using the Spellbinders Rose Creations Die and the leaves were made using the Spellbinders Foliage die. The roses were made using plain white card stock and I inked the petals with Ranger Distress Inks and shaped the petals then glued them together. I used a gold leafing pen to add just a touch of gold to the petals of the flowers. Just a tiny bit .... I didn't want to lose any of the elegance of the flower. The petals were edged in Distress Inks and spritzed with water then crumpled to shape and give them some shape.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed doing it. Making flowers just seems to make me a happy girl. Have a great day and a wonderful week and I hope you can find a little time to create.
