Tag your it!

Petals & Peace Graphic
Ooh, this is a beauty of a set from Flourishes.  Introducing Petals and Peace.  It contains two floral images and sentiments…and best of all Flourishes now has custom dies from Spellbinders that match this set!   The first die set is called Classic Keyhole

I used this beautiful rose and pine image and cut it out with the large die and created a tag with it.

I stamped the image on watercolor paper and painted it with various reinkers.  I added glitter with a Quickie Glue Pen.  I used the small die to cut out the sentiment and  I shaded inside both dies with a frosty blue chalk ink.  You can see that the top of the large die is the perfect shape to fit the die cut sentiment.  I liked the way my image looked with the large end at the top…but you will see that most often it’s viewed with the large end at the bottom.  In any case it works in both directions.  The reason I chose to put my sentiment at the bottom instead is because I popped up my roses at two different levels and it wouldn’t be possible to put the sentiment over it…besides, I didn’t want to cover up those gorgeous roses!
Hint…this also might be today’s noon time challenge-check the Flourishes blog at noon today to find out!
These colors are today’s Color Throwdown challenge too!  Sort of.  My colors are bit more muted, but fit the profile.
