Flashy Floral Watercolor Tag


I made this tag tonight and absolutely love it! I used one of my new stamp sets from Inkadinkado called Flashy Floral. Like the Inkadinkado website says, this set just begs to be colored!

I stamped the flowers with my VersaFine Black Onyx ink onto a plain manilla tag. I inked over the entire tag with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, and Tea Dye Distress Ink.

I then stamped the same flowers onto a scrap piece of watercolor paper, used Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks with my Zig Brush2O to color them in.

I cut each flower out, and adhered them to their corresponding flower on the tag. 

After stamping some dots with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and a Tim Holtz stamp, and added some white Enamel Accents from Ranger to the dots on the stamps.

The sentiment stamp came from the Hero Arts Thinking of You Messages set.
