Was beginning to wonder if I would get round to making a tag or not for this months UK stampers forum tag swap … but then inspiration struck whilst playing with this months Creative Stamping magazine which I treated myself to this past weekend.
I stamped the floral image which was the reason I bought the magazine in the first place and decided to colour them in using soft yellows and greens and then fussy cut the image.
The magazine came with a stencil and so decided to ink through the stencil with versamark and then I was going to get a pearl embossing powder but spotted the Seth Apter Baked Texture rust powder and grabbed that instead … and wo was I happy with the result. I forgot how cool these powders were to play with.
I then grabbed some of the die cuts I spent an hour cutting from scraps the other day and layered those under the floral image.
I decided to grab the baked texture embossing powder and a scrap to make a little strip … but this time multiple layers of versamark and the powder to get the different effect and this went across the tag and under the sentiment.
Finished off with ribbon, twine and some pearls.
Love how easily this came together once the stencilling was done … it was like all the pieces were there and waiting! Nice to get a new stamp set to play with too … been a while since I bought a magazine and must admit I have a real thing about floral images at the moment.

The spray of flowers sit so prettily against the textural background, many thanks for joining our July challenge at Stamping Sensations.
Thank you x
There is lots of lovely texture on this pretty tag. Super colour work on the flowers and those die cut leaves add some lovely extra dimension. It’s great to see you joining in the fun at Stamping Sensations with this pretty creation. Hugs, Lesley
