Spring Tag

Keeping with the Spring theme from the last post, this is a decorated tag made for our craft group's tag challenge for March. A few of the ladies in the group had made tags for online classes and Tim Holtz's challenges so we decided to set our own tag challenges for each meet this year.  A Spring/Easter theme was chosen for March and the inspiration for my tag came from the daffodils which had recently bloomed in the back garden.


Using My Craft Studio and the Nitwit Collection Daffodil Joy, a backing paper and elements were sized and arranged to make a base layer for the tag.  Extra daffodil flowers were printed to cut and decoupage to add dimension.  Neutral coloured thread was looped and added between the daffodil layers and a yellow button added to the centre.  The message on the paint chip element was particularly fitting and added to it were daffodil stickers which had been a magazine free gift.

The first lines of Wordsworth's poem Daffodils were printed and die cut using Joy Crafts cloud dies. Green ink was sponged around the clouds and green clouds matted behind.  The daffodil embellishment was from a Create and Craft button stash I'd bought many moons ago and it had finally found it's purpose.

Other additions to the tag were pink self adhesive pearls and pink gingham ribbon, picking up the pink on the paper elements, and lemon grosgrain ribbon.

Hope you enjoyed my little bit of sunshine today.
