When I was gazing around Jenni's craft room the other day, my eyes came to rest on the shelf where she keeps her JOFY stamps - have I mentioned I love JOFY stamps? The images are so quirky and fun and I found myself wanting to use all of them - but of course, I didn't!
I started the tag off by blending blue, yellow and green Distress Inks together for the background, and gave them a quick water spritz to add some age spots.
I then stamped JOFY #11 & #14 for my flower garden, and coloured them using Distress Inks stamped onto an acrylic block with water added.
I stamped the dragon fly from a Prima set of stamps called "Butterfly Wings" that I picked up at a craft show last year. There are different wings and bodies along with pen nibs and other bits & pieces in this set, but for this tag I chose the dragonfly.
After I coloured him, cut him out and popped him on dimensionals, I added a bit of sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen. As the tag looked like it needed a little something extra, I added dashes around the border and finished with a snippet of seam binding ribbon tied with a piece of twine.
This tag doesn't fit in with any challenges that I'm aware of this week but that's ok as I simply enjoyed making it - it sort of reminds me of a summer's day, and we're certainly having lots of them at the moment!
