A flowery tag for Bee Crafty


After last week's sunflower, I thought I would share my second favourite Bee Crafty flower with you today on a tag. Here is how I made it

I cut the largest tag (with a hole) from some corrugated card (mine came from some packaging around some biscuits and was originally white, but it would be worth experimenting with a variety of packaging)

I sprayed it with distress oxide sprays in Wilted Violet, Rustic Wilderness and Salty Ocean

Once it was dry I stuck it onto a black layer, again cut with the tag dies

I set this to one side and took the flower from the XL Doodle Art Ladybird set and stamped it three times on to watercolour paper in black waterproof ink (versafine, versafine clair or Archival will be fine)

I cut out the whole flower, leaving a border, the pointed petals and the very centre of the flower.

I used ecoline pens to colour the flower.

Once the flower parts were dry I shaped them on a piece of foam using a ball tool.

I used 3d glue to layer the flower to the front of the tag.

I stamped a sentiment from the Small words set onto a scrap of the watercolour card and cut it out

I added it to the tag along with some white gel pen highlights and some dots of liquid pearls to finish it off. I also punched a hole through the black layer and added a scrap of ribbon. Here is the finished tag.

And here is a close up to show the dimension

The effects of the sprays on corrugated card is definitely something I will try more of, and a bit of recycling is a bonus.

 Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments!

Always good to recycle ....and I hope you enjoyed the biscuits?....Lol x.
Such a pretty tag and I love how the colours have fallen into the corrugated card. Great that the card also took the wetting and came out so beautiful x. Striking and creative tag x.
