Find Delight in the everyday Things

I love this saying stamp from Studio 490 (Stampers Anonymous). Actually all the stamps used on this tag are Studio 490. For the background (a Tim Holtz technique) I used Distress Ink wild honey... rubbed the pad on a craft sheet, spritzed it with Perfect Pearls Sunflower mixed with water in a mini mister bottle, and layed the tag in it. Dried it, tapped it in the left over puddles, and dried it again. The fern leaves are done using the Kissing Technique Wendy Vecchi is talking about on her blog... but I inked the leaf with green pigment ink and then pressed it onto a checkered background image that was inked with purple pigment ink, then stamped the leaf onto the tag... cleaned the stamp and repeated for each stamping. I also stamped one on a piece of the same background done on cardstock and cut it out. The darker flowers are inked with distress ink victorian velvet, the lighter ones are spun sugar ink, and the "yellow" ones are wild honey. All black ink is Archival Ink jet black. The edge of the tag is inked with bundled sage. Ideology snaps in the centers of the flowers.
