Floral gift tag - great for Mother's Day

Hello, Joanne here again.

While I had the colouring supplies out on the desk for the seed packet project in my last post (here if you missed it and would like to see) I coloured the floral spray from the Fragrant Honeysuckle set and turned it into a pretty tag. I think this would be a lovely addition to a gift of a bunch of flowers.


I stamped and cut out with a Beaded Oval Nestability die and then carefully cut the beads off, cutting round the flower head and leaves that extended beyond the basic oval shape,. I coloured the image with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and then sponged ink round the edge. I stuck the coloured piece onto a second beaded oval die cut and finished with a simple ribbon at the top.

I used a Copic marker to colour white silk ribbon on both of these projects - it's a great way to get a match for the colours in your image.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  5. The way the leaves & various elements of the image extend over the perimeter of that inner unbeaded oval is very effective & I love the way the whole creation is so vibrant & spring-like.
