The Stamp Man - "Embellish It"

I am very excited to be hosting my very first challenge over at The Stamp Man. The challenge is as it says - design a project and then add some embellishments. I tend to spend far too much time hunting for or making the right embellishments. But for me they are an important part of the project and can make or break it. Nowadays we have so much choice in dies and punches to make our own embellishments. Especially flower dies..!!
I love making my own to perfectly compliment my project.
I have made a tag for my project.

  • I die-cut a white tag and blended Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint over the whole tag. Then I splattered with water. 
  • I added a bit of background stamping, then stamped the beautiful Aspect of Design Oxalis stamp in black onto the tag and again onto white glossy card. 
  • Cut out the script frame and soften with a bit of blended ink and layer onto black card.
  •  Then I die-cut the flowers from text paper stuck onto scraps of card.
  • Add some leaves, gems and a Tim Holtz muse token to finish.
