Darling Viola Love

Hello stamping friends.

Today I have a tag.

I don't usually do tags, but I wanted to join in at the
poppy Challenge

I was the random winner there last month and I'm excitedly awaiting more Poppystamp dies!

I used my NBUS Darling Viola and cut twice from mixed media paper.

I also used the Poppystamp Pin Point Main Street Tag die cut from a piece of
smooshed mixed media paper.

The flowers were painted with my Kuretake Gansi Tambi paints.

A light stamping of script gives the tag a little more dimension.

When the flowers were dry, I gently shaped them and attached them to
the tag with rolled glue dots and bits of dimensionals.

A stamped sentiment and some ribbon finished it off so it's ready for DD's birthday present.

I'm going to join in at tag Tag You're It Challenge too.
My flowers don't add as much dimension as her gorgeous flower, but I've
got dimension and pink.  I think I'm squeaking in just under the wire.

and it fits our 
It closes the 24th.

Oops! It is pink and green watercolor but it isn't a card.

You can join in with a card though.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

I'm not big on making tags, either, but you've certainly done a super job with this one. Love the shape of the tag, and the smooshed background with the subtle text. The violas are just so pretty with this background, and great work on the shaping. YAY on your Poppy win as well. TFS & Hugs
