"In joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends." - Kozuko Okakura


Today I bring you a flower project I did on a tag.  I rarely do tags matter of fact this is only my second one.  I know most in the paper crafting world adore the tags created by Tim Holtz.  I know I do.  Although it is not in the Tim Holtz style it is more in the Fran style (wink).

However,  if you are like me and love pansies then I know you will love this new Pansy Digital Image by McMahon Five Designs.

I used two brands of ink pads to color the tag and bow (seam binding).  Three of the colors are by Tim Holtz, Distress Ink Pads (Vintage Photo,Pine Needles & Scattered Straw).  The other two colors are by Storage Unit Inks and More (Purple and Orchid).  The brand of glitter is Martha Stewart (color-Charoite).  The gold beads are Liquid Pearls (color-Buttercup).  I colored the pansy using Prisma Color Pencils on Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# paper (I love this paper).  And the butterflies and swirl were cut on my Cricut Expression using just scraps from my paper stash.  Then dusted with two different colors of glitter by Martha Stewart (Florentine Gold & Carrara Marble). 

Thank you for visiting My Blog today.  And I hope your day is good to you.
