Good morning folks, did you catch Nikky on C&C with the gorgeous Stamp Soup clear stamp sets and the fab new Lemonade Fizz and Lavender Tea CD collections? Wow they sold like hot cakes but if you pop over to the Polkadoodles shop you may find a few goodies left.
I've made a large tag using just the stamps. I began by creating a pva crackle background using emulsion paint tester pots. Next I stamped my design using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and lots of post it masks, these stamps are all separate elements so you can have loads of fun creating your own flowers. You can also us them for lots of other things, the DT came up with lots of fun ideas including butterflies, dragonflies, birds, owls, hedgehog and a fairy. I got busy colouring with my Graph'It Markers. I wasn't sure how the colours would take on this kind of background but they are beautifully vibrant. I added some shadows with grey markers and some highlights with a white Graph'It Shake pen.
Next I stencilled the background using a Dutch Doobadoo Chicken Wire stencil and texture paste. I die cut the word 'bloom' using a Memory Box die and coloured the letters with Graph'it 8245 and wrote the rest of the words on scraps of paper. To finish off I've added some pretty irridescent sequins and some scraps of ribbon.
I'm entering this tag in the following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy: things with wings
My time to craft: flowers
The Crazy Challenge: flowers
