Mum's the Word.

The Theme for the May Tag over on The Altered Paper is Flowers/Mothersday. Tags have now gone out so I am showing you the tag I made for my partner. I'm still in roses mode but have cut these on a smaller scale using the  Spellbinders 'Rose Creations'  S5-050 die.
I have used  white cartidge paper 140gsm weight  and coloured the petals using pearlescent chalks and ColorBox chalk ink pads on the edges. The rose leaves are from the same die and have been coloured with a green ColorBox chalk. The sentiment was computer generated in word and the edges of the paper torn and  again coloured with a matching ColorBox chalk. (Can you can tell I like working with both of these mediums.!) Ribbon is from my stash as is the cartridge paper. The tag itself is made from recyled calender pages adhered back to back and cut to the correct tag size.


Entering into the following challenges:
Use it Tuesdays: All about Mom (Used hoarded supplies as above.)
Crafty Catz : May Flowers.
By the Cute & Girly: Spring is in the Air.
And as I have used cartridge paper from my snippets folder  Pixies Crafty Snippets:

Oh Mrs A - it's gorgeous! I love how you do your roses - maybe, if this rain doesn't stop, we can have a little masterclass in the playground hut? Hope you feel a bit better today honey. Animals always take a part of our hearts with them. Hugs, Di xx
