Wow Spring Is Here!

Spring means to me flowers budding and bright colours popping out from dull places making me think summer is not too far round the corner. 
·          I cut the tag with my silhouette using pre-embossed card. 
·          Applied Versamark all over the tag and heat embossed with Easter sparkle. 
·          The flowers window box is made with the drawer die, embossed green and a piece of card cut to the size of the die and sprinkled with gold glitter. I stuck to the tag with 3D gel so that it grips to the glitter. 
·          I then cut flowers with various dies and papers.  
·          Heat embossed with the wow embossing powders. The pink and red flowers I applied glue to the tips of the petals and then sprinkled on glitter, because I had already assembled the flowers it was really hard to heat emboss. I found this out when I tried to do it on another flower, it was totally ruined, lol. 
·          Applied crystal drops to the centres. 
·          I die cut the dragonfly and applied silver to the wings. 
·          Faux stitching applied with a fine marker pen
·          Ribbon to finish the tag.
