I bought these beautiful Farmer's Market tags from Isabella's Sketchbook a few weeks ago and have been itching to use them. I was studying the image and decided I wanted to try to create apple blossoms out of fabric to go along with the tag. You know I'm nuts over handmade flowers, especially fabric ones! I used two dies, of course one was my treasured Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and cut the second largest flower on that die. I cut two in tulle and two in crinoline for each flower. The other die I used was the Sizzix Flower and Vines #3 and I cut two in crinoline with the middle sized flower on that die. So each flower has six layers. I used a Certainly Celery brad from SU and a jewelry spacer in the center of each flower. The leaves were cut from canvas with a Spellbinders die and dyed with Garden Green reinker.
What else did I use? Humm...lots of tools and supplies but after I was finished, I realized there there is no stamping on this card. The border is a Martha Stewart punch, the dry embossing is from the Organic Flourishes edge embossing folders from Cuttlebug, the DP is by Raspberry Road, but you won't find it because I changed it up quite a bit with my Photoshop Elements. I found the sentiment line and used one of my cool fonts to type it on my computer and print it out (I also collect fonts). And there these is a wisp of shabby seam binding that I left in its original color. All the edges are very gently ink distressed with Creamy Caramel ink and I threw in a little stitching for interest.
I really love these Farmer's Market tags and can't wait to use more. I am thinking of trying to do a little series with them so you will definitely be seeing them again in the future! You should drop by Isabella's Sketchbook. She has a whole series of hand illustrated collage sheets with floral tags, country roosters, Easter tags, etc. Her digis are wonderful too!
