Hi all, Kat here,
The sun is shining & it feels like ages since I have made a tag,
& I also wanted to try out my new Spring Distress Inks
& the swirl stamp from the cover of craft stamper magazine.

So here it is,
To start I used Tim's Wrinkle free distress technique to colour the tag
with all three of the Spring Distress Inks, 
then stamped the swirl with the Shaded Lilac colour.
I then blended the edge with Gathered Twig Distress Ink.
Next I stamped in Jet Black archival ink
the houses off the Our House stamp set,
the large butterfly off the Bunting stamp set
& the sentiment off the Home Sweet Home stamp set
I cut them out then coloured them with a wet paint brush
After I stuck it all in place
I added the ribbon & trim from Tim Holtz Trim idea-ology range.
hope you like it!
it put a happy smile on my face anyway,
thanks for stopping by, to read this post.
Take care,
Kat x.
