Ordinary is Extraordinary Tag

Hello,

Here is a tag I made using the flower digital stamp of the Alice Elements Set from The Octopode Factory.

I used Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Cracked Pistachio for the background. I flicked on some water to create some droplets.

I edged around the entire tag with silver embossing powder.

I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut it out. I drew my own stem and attached it behind the flower, which I popped up using foam tape.

I added Glossy Accents to her eyes and some green wide ribbon to the top.

The sentiment is a sticker phrase from Tim Holtz.

Thanks for having a look.
