Birthday flowers

Good morning bloggers just wanted to pop in and share a card I made for a friends birthday coming up . Since spring is suppose to be here thought I'd go with something springy . I started off with a white base for my card then sponged it with Peacock DI ,for the next layer I used Tim's Gothic stencil and following Pameilla Johnson's Faux Embroidery tech . which you can find HERE I applied the stencil  diagonally across the card and then on the other half just sponged over the stencil using again Peacock DI. Really happy with the look. Flowers were made from TH's tattered florals garland and sponged with Salty Ocean DI and Vintage photo DI. Leaves are Prima Marketing. Other dies used are Spellbinders Decorative Labels 22 , Labels 4 and Garden Weave. Stamp is by Penny Black .

12 Tags of 2015 --April

Well I missed March tag simply because I didn't have the stickers that he used on the tag . So this month even though I didn't have all the tools and products Tim used I wanted to give it a try . I'm happy with the result .
The stamp is from Paper Inspirations --Coneflower which I've had for years .
I didn't have any of Tim markers so used Tombow markers . I think I really need to pick up a few of the TH ones since the colors seem to blend much nicer. Didn't have the spritzer either so just misted ove the watered background . The beautiful was stamped in black and embossed with clear EP since all the word dies I have were to big for the area.I did color the butterfly with Stream alcohol ink. The ribbon was dyed with Worn Lipstick and Broken China DI . To complete the tag I machine stitch around the perimeter and added a twine bow .
