Sunday Stampers - Waterloo Sunset

Today Hels has chosen the song Waterloo Sunset for her Sunday Stampers theme and inspires us to use sunset as a theme - either the colours or a sunset itself.  I was totally intending to use some of my under-used Stampscapes stamps and stamp a sunset, but instead this happened!

Coloured the tag with wild honey and fired brick distress stains, stamped the single daisy (Impression Obsession) - clean rubber, not used since I bought it at the Newbury show earlier this month!!  and then sat and looked at it for hours, thinking...... 
Die cut some flowers (Paperartsy dies) from watercolour paper I'd used distress inks on, and pinched the petals together, forming a 3 layer flower. The baby die has a Wendy stamp stamped in the centre.  The words are also Paperartsy. 

Thanks for looking - and welcome to my new followers! Hope you like it, cos I'm still not sure....
