Hello

I couldn't wait to play in a brand new challenge called


And this is my card:




I tried to use lots of textures, but not overwhelm the card.
I just got this new stamp set by Penny Black called Blooming Tags.
I stamped it on watercolor paper and then colored the image with Ranger Distress markers.
Beneath the tag is a die from Tim Holtz for Sizzix called Trellis. The background paper was inked with Disress ink. I then added texture with some white embossing paste that I mixed with Watermelon alcohol ink to get the matching ink color. Lastly, I added ribbon, twine and black gems. And there you go! I am so excited about this new challenge! It is gonna be lots of fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Mackie

Stamps: Blooming Tags (Penny Black), Ink Splash (Neat & Tangled), Positive Thoughts (Precious Remembrance)
Alcohol Ink: Watermelon (Ranger)
Embossing Paste: Wendy Vecchi
Die: Trellis ( Tim Holtz)
