what did you say???

A TAG!!!
Well I'd be more than HAPPY to make one!!!


I started rootin' through my stash...to pull out an OLDIE but GOODIE!!
Nature Grungeboard.

I had a "wonder if this will work" moment.

Colored the grungeboard pieces with various Distress Stains
then I lathered on some Beeswax that had
been melted in a Melt Pot with Project Pan.
Using my Heat It Tool.....I melted the wax to infuse it
into the grungeboard.
When cooled I brushed on various Perfect Pearls
(and it just sticks!!)

Love it when a THOUGHT works!!

For the tag.....
I stamped various images with Archival Inks.
Using my Ink Blending Tool, I covered the tag with various Distress Inks.
With that heated Beeswax....I painted it on the tag.
Infused it into the card with my Heat It Tool.

Are you READY TO MAKE A TAG!!???!?!

Don't forget to like you creations to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog...
cause who wouldn't love to win this little ditty!!!

Lynne, your spring tag is so lovely! I love the colors and the flower! I just think your flowers are always amazing! It was interesting to me to see how you did the Grungeboard stems and leaves! How cool it that?!? Love your results when you mixed the stains, beeswax and finally Perfect Pearls! <3 Candy

Just a stunning tag, that screams SPRING! I love the letters along the side, it really balances out the flowers in a nice way :)
