Blessings Abound

Hello!  I know I've been MIA recently.  I've been back in Key West again for a 10 day vacation, enjoying the sun and the sand and a lot of cycling (I rode 200 miles this week :)  I made this tag ahead of time for my Artistic Outpost DT posting this week.  Exciting news too about Artistic Outpost - the store is open again under the new owners and they are kicking off with a sale starting Monday!

I started this tag with one of the jumbo manila tags that I sell in the boutique and white embossed the flowers from Flower Market.  I did a little stenciling with the Tim Holtz Schoolhouse stencil and Jet Black archival ink plus I inked up the text stamp from Paperboy and rolled it on very lightly.  Then it was sponged with a combination of Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn for the greens and Broken China for the blue and then had a little spritz 'n flick done to it.  I made a little flower with crinoline cut with the Mini Tattered Florals die and colored with Scattered Straw.  The ivy was cut with the Spring Greenery decorative strip die, stamped with the text stamp from Paperboy and spritzed with Perfect Pearls Biscotti spray.  

The sentiment is from the Flower Market set plus I second generation stamped a flower from Flower Market on the panel in Broken China.  I pulled a couple of tiny brass metal filigrees out of my stash for embellishments and topped the tag off with a piece of embroidered lace from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  

Thanks so much for dropping by today.   I'm always thrilled to have you stop by and/or leave comments.  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

The supplies below were used to create this tag and are available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique where Tim Holtz/Ranger products are always 20% below MSRP.

Sounds as though you had a wonderful break, Linda - much deserved - and an active one too!

What a lovely, lovely tag - the delicate embossed flowers in that beautiful inky background are so pretty - this is just delightful.

OH--Key West? Did you go and visit Robert the Haunted Doll? I just had to ask :) Way to go on the riding! A couple of centuries on the bike odometer! AWESOME! (I used to ride all the time!)
I LOVE this beautiful tag, Linda! The little yellow crinoline flower is wonderful! Welcome home!! XOXO-Shari T.
