By the sea....

Hi my friends! Thank you for all your comments whilst I have been absent, I now have a new computer and am back in blogland!
I have a tag to share today. I wanted to use stamping on it and I found my shrink plastic to add some flowers for movement.

I cut out a tag shape, then lightly stamped the background with a flower stamp. On a separate piece of card, I stamped the 3 images and then again with the beach stamp.  I then cut out the letters and layered them up. I used my distress inks for water colouring the main image.  The flowers are die cut onto card and shrink plastic (distressed with blue ink), then shrunk down and added.  I also heated my ribbon to give a wavy effect and completed the tag.
I would like to enter my tag into the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen - Anything goes excluding Christmas
Emergency Crafters - Anything Goes
Crafting For All Seasons - Use Flowers

I feel that the tag has a faded, vintage theme so would also like to participate in the Sunday Stampers Week 233 - My first entry!

Thanks for stopping by today.x
