Accordion Tag Card by Sioux Jenneys

It's my time to share again and it's an accordion tag card.

If you like the water coloured look then these flower stamps from Botanical Plate 1 will be just up your street! :)

1. First cut a piece of heavy weight textured water colour paper 12cm by 18cm and then score at 6cm and 12cm.

...you do need to use water colour paper...nothing else cuts the mustard! LOL

2. Crease the folds and cut through all your layers at once for the angled tag top.

3. Using a mixture of the following Distress Ink colours, selectively ink up the hydrangea and lily stamps and spritz with water.

...no need to be precise it all oozes together nicely when you stamp it.

4. Using a mixture of the following Distress Inks do the same with the central daisy image.

5. Over stamp the flowers slightly with sentiment words and sayings in Archival black.

6. Use the following Distress Inks to stamp the dainty butterfly from Insects and Butterflies randomly  at the top of each panel.

...I love the flurry of butterflies must remember to do this again! LOL

7. Punch holes at the tag tops and add fibres.

...similar ones can be found here.

That's the last piece from me this month so see you for the new monthly challenge in July!

There is still plenty of time though to join in this months colour challenge...why not give it a go?
xoxo Sioux
