I decided after the Lynne Perella play I shared the other day to make some more Paperartsy themed birthday cards.
This time I chose to play with Distress Oxides and the fun Ellen Vargo carved flowers. I love the linocut appearance of these.
I started with making two backgrounds… both different to each other but both fun to make. Then on a separate panel of cardstock I made the tags. The top one was a scrap of cardstock I had already painted with a layer of fresco finish paints and I decided to heat emboss the tag and the flower. The bottom one I did a watery layer of distress oxide using the same colours as the background.
I raised the tags on foam tape to give dimension and added some scraps of ribbon to the tags.
Both sentiment and the tag shape are Emma Godfrey stamps.
