On to my creation!
Gathering by Authentique. I just love the sky blues and poppy oranges in this pad! Normally, I color and then look through my paper stash to see what paper I have that matches. Lately, however, I've been doing it just the opposite - picking paper and embellishments and then - matching up my Copic markers to the paper. So much easier!
Here's a close up of my colored image!
I used these collections to color it all up! The flowers were a mix of the Sweet Pea and Burnt Orange collections. I used R01, R02, YR00 and YR18.
And, here's a close up of my tag that I created. It's attached to some fabby ribbon my sweet friend Beate sent me - it's her fave. :-) Good news! This ribbon is on the way to the Flourishes store and will be here soon. if you like the look - the store does have a similar ribbon you can find HERE. After I added the ribbon and attached the tag, I did accent it with a pretty little crystal. The sentiment is actually a teaser and is in one of the new sets Flourishes will soon release! It was just the perfect size, so I couldn't resist! ;-)
So... how did I do this little tag? Easy! Let me show you!
First I started with Flourishes Classic Bookplate Die and a snippet of Flourishes Classic White Card Stock....
After I cut and embossed, I trimmed off about 1/2" to 3/4" off the top using my paper cutter.
