Fairy tag

 It's a gloomy wet, cold afternoon here in Kent, much as it's been for most of this week.  There was even some snow on the ground this morning but the rain soon put paid to that! I've spent a fair amount of time in my craft room- it's warm and dry in here and I have lots of gorgeous new Lavinia stamps and inks to play with, a birthday gift from my lovely husband! Here's a tag I made, inspired by the challenge over at Tag Tuesday- the current theme is Faery Gardens.

I die cut 2 matching tags from white cardstock, then cut an arch shaped aperture in one of them. I sponged them with  Lavinia  Elements Pine -these new ink pads are gorgeous- leaving a space on the tag without the aperture for my stamped and stencilled scene. I die cut a small round tag for the sentiment, sponged and stencilled it to match the main tags and tied them together with green string. I added some tiny die cut  flowers and leaves to finish.

I'm off now for some more inky play... those new stamps are calling! Thank you for visiting today, I hope you have a good weekend, take care and keep safe.
