High Tide Tag

I was up early today and had the urge to play with ink and paper. 

I started with a background of distress inks.  I then added the sentiment (Stampin' Up "High Tide" stamp set). Using a Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous set I added the black dotty section to the top right of the tag.Next I rescued a section of a Memorybox honeycombe die cut from my off-cuts box, positioning to the top left and bottom right.

Using the Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous, "Mini Bouquet - CMS269", I stamped the flower heads onto white cardstock.  Using Promarkers in six different shades, I coloured the flowers in (Pear Green, Buttercup, Gold, Dusky Pink, Cinnamon, Cocoa). I then hand cut round the flower and adhered them onto the tag.  Some flat others elevated with foam pads.

Finally to lift some of the solid areas of the distressed background I used a Signo white pen to add dots to replicate a splatter effect.
