Flower Tag - inspired by Leandra for Paperartsy

Last weekend at Stevenage, you may have seen the gorgeous tag Leandra made me
that evening I started a version of my own, using some of the new Lin Brown stamps I'd bought that day... didn't like the first few layers of paint on the background,too sludgy... so just kept going..



eventually got to a stage where it was OK.


 didn't take any more photos until the stamping was done...nor can I remember what colours are in the background..

I do know I used South Pacific to colour the flowers, and a mixture of greens for the stems.

Added some white pen highlights to the petals, and some more stamping to the foot of the tag
not completely happy with this, but I do like the background at least...

I don't know why you're not happy with it - I think it's gorgeous. Love the depth of the background created by those persevering layers, and the flowers look lovely.
