This months topic over at The Artistic Stamper Blog is Springtime, with that in mind i decided to put a slightly different take on the theme and this is what i came up with
I started by taking a printed tag and covering it with Cut Grass Dylusions paint
I stamped the Tick Tock flower stamp onto another printed tag, which i had painted with a mix of Tangerine Dream and Lemon Zest. The leaves were stamped using the leaves from the Lesley Matthewson Dog Rose set, and were stamped onto another piece of tag, this time painted with polished jade.
I stamped around the edges using the Decay background in Lucky Clover Distress Ink and then in Archival Black and the mini Decay background stamp.
The stem was made using jewellery wire wrapped around a pencil
The lettering was done using a new alphabet washi tape from The Artistic Stamper
The layers were raised using the pieces of wood you sometimes get with a new canvas which are designed to support the back of it. However they do come in really useful in mixed media
