I started to tidy up my garden today but then it began to rain, so what better to do than some crafting instead. Here is my latest make which I'm entering into the following challenges.

Tuesday Taggers- A Tag (sponsored by Georgina)
Our Creative Corner- Buttons
The Pink Elephant- Nature

I coloured the base card of my tag with Antique Linen D.I. building the colour up around the edges. Then I inked around the edges with Faded Jeans and Old Paper D.I. I stamped some images from Crafty Individuals-207 in various shades of blue. Next I stamped the french Nature quote by Katzelkraft in Walnut Stain D.I. and heat embossed it with clear EP.

I matted this tag onto a piece of toning green Bazzil which had been spritzed with blue Cosmic Shimmer
and distressed around the edges. I punched a hole and tied some raffia through it and added a blue button to finish.

Hope you like it, not a great photo day today as you can see. TFL and for all your lovely comments.



  1. Absolutely beautiful tag Fiona, I love the floral stamps and how you used the distress ink for the background, it has such a pretty muted feel to it. I think crafting beats gardening any day of the week what luck that it started to rain :D!! Chris xx

  2. Love it Fiona it looks so fresh and rather gentle.

    You got your gardening in just in time, as Paul went to go out it started to rain.
