Lavinia Stamps "Foxglove" Congratulations Gift Tag

I couldn't decide what to make today, so decided on a little gift tag.

I created the background using Distress Inks in a number of different shades applied with a paint brush.  

When dry, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Foxgloves" using Memento Ink in the shades of "Grape Jelly" for the flowers and "Bamboo Leaves" for the stems.

The "congratulations" sentiment, is part of a Papertrey Ink set called "Fillable Frames Sentiments" which was also stamped in the same "Grape Jelly" ink.

I stamped the Lavinia "snail" and the "bee" which are both from their pound stamp section in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink and coloured the bee body with a yellow/orange Arteza brush pen.

I added highlights with a Sakura Gelly Roll gold shimmer pen and also a white Signo pen.
