Today is a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers,
the theme is 'Go Green'

Please pop over to their blog, Crafty Cardmakers, to see the other designs and inspiration from my very talented design teamies
I chose to make a tag showing lots of green but also to incorporate stash I had stored!
I covered the tag using white Gesso, then gave it a coating of Distress Ink in Pine Needles.  When dry I randomly smoothed a little more of white Gesso 

The paper flowers are made free hand, as are the leaves.  The foliage is also from my stash
I matted a piece of orange paper onto black card and adhered it to the tag.  The flowers, leaves and foliage were arranged and also adhered to the tag
I used an old stamp set to stamp the word FUN, each letter on a different coloured paper, then matted to black card.  I tweaked two letters for a little dimension
To complete I covered each letter with Glossy Accents and left
them overnight to dry completely.  When dry I adhered each letter to the tag

Thank you for visiting, I do read all your comments
