Warming of Springtime Tag for Creative Expressions!

If you are here for the FROSTED DESIGNS BLOG HOP, click HERE


I wanted to do a tag that made me think of the warming weather of spring this week. I started with some gorgeous Tim Holtz Crowded Attic paper, cut into a tag shape. I then stamped the gorgeous Thank You Pre Cut stamp twice with Jet Black Archival Ink taking the flower image to use in my tag. I inked the background with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, then painted in the orange blossoms using my new Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist in Buttercup. I also used this mist to warm up the tag background, I just love the tone it gives the tag!

Next I layered the two stamps up on foam tape on the tag. I added the word "Spring" using the Tim Holtz Ransom Alpha Parts.  For my final touches I added a gorgeous Creative Expressions Fancy Key Charms, some gorgeous 5mm Black Pearls and some beautiful May Arts 1.5" Cream Crochet Ribbon. I attached the lace to my tag using the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher and Tiny Staples!
