Wooden Tag


I love poppies, have always loved them cheerful bright red delicate flowers popping in verges on waste sites all per the place these delicate flowers bring a cheerful splash of colour.

So I've been looking at this tag wondering what to do today a poppy stencil reminded me of it's existence.  Gave the MDF tag a coat of weathered wood distress stain and then used the stencil with embossing paste.    When it was dry, with the help of a heat gun, white DI stain worked over everything and the embossed paste coloured with ProMarkers.    Various floral and flourish stamps decorate the sides of the tag some before the second coat of weathered wood stain applied and then Promarker Twilight finally more stamping.

The butterfly is wax paper, it was used to help cut some DP with a die but when it came out of the die I decided that the wax paper die cut was better for this.   There is a little bee stamp top right of the tag as well.

There are challenges to share this with!
