Another clean and simple design

Hello again,
Another flowery card. This time I made it with minimum color. I did water coloring using black soot distress ink. use it very light and blend it with water just enough to give shadow effect. For the branch, I used peeled paint. It's very easy, no secret. Here it is:

Finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inch; Image & Sentiment: Hero Arts clear stamp-Delicate Blossom, Hero Arts clear stamp-Leaf Prints; Cardstock: Canson specialty paper; Others: twinery, button, rhinestones.

I like the image very much. I'll make something more with it. Thanks for looking. Best wishes from me to you :).

Just Tag it!

Happy monday,
I love tags. I make tags very often. I just like the tiny size of papers and feel challenged to create something nice with it.
I made these tags from Spellbinder label 25 and using several images from Lawn Fawn clear stamp - Critters in the Forest.

 
O ya, I clear embossed some stars from Lawn Fawn - Ornate Ornaments, distress with many colors of ranger distress inks ( tumbled glass, broken china, faded jeans, dusty concord, pumice stone, and iced spruce). I just decided not to give any sentiment.

Here is another closer look:
 
It will be perfect as a present tag in this holiday season.

Have a nice day :)

Utilize my Square Punch

I've been seeing that we can use square punch for many ways. That's one of the reason I bought square punch from Fiskars a year ago. Mine is 1 3/8 inch square. Well, I don't use that punch very often, that's why I'm challenged to enter Moxie Fab World challenge. This is also good to get rid of my scrap papers. LOL :)
