Even if spring has not really started in Finland yet, my mind is already shifted from dull grey winter to the colourful, bloomin season ahead of us. Inspired by the increasing amount of colour in the scenery I made two tags with Visible Image stamps and Distress Oxide colours in the background:
One of the coolest things about new Distress Oxide inks is that you can easily layer the colours and create vibrant colour combinations. Just dry each colour layer with your heat gun before applying the next layer; new layers will not react with the ones underneath.
I added a hint of black with a VI script background stamp. I did not use a mounting block but held the stamp it in my hand, bending it when stamping the texture on the tag.
Then I stamped the lovely flowers in three sizes on white paper, coloured them with Promarkers and cut out. Before gluing them on the tags I bent the flower petals gently for creating a dimensional look. I decorated the flowers with small seed beads.
