Shopping Our Stash - How Does Your Garden Grow?


 Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Welcome to another week of stash reducing fun!  
The Shopping Our Stash Team thought we would keep it easy this week and give you a broad theme: 
 Anything One Might Find In A Garden!
This has proven to be another good stash reducing challenge for me.  About three years ago I purchased a box of tags (1000 count) because I planned on making a bunch of tag minis!   Need I say it? There are still 975 tags in the box!  I was also able to use some embellishments from a card that I "deconstructed."
Stash Items: Manilla Tag - 3 years old
Paper Butterfly - 2 years old
Crinkled Ribbon - 4 years old
Brad - 4 years old

Tutorial - Creating A Leafy Background using ColorBox 

Supply List:
Standard Tag - Manilla
Die Cut Butterfly/flowers
Ribbon
Brad
Step Tutorial
I created a second tag using a fall palette.
~~~~~


Determine your color palette (I wanted the manilla to show through in my design.  You can color your tag or used a colored tag.)  I used the purples and greens from the Queue stack and Creamy Brown, Burnt Sienna, Yellow Citrus and Dark Brown Cat's Eye Pads.

Using your Cat's Eye Pad, stamp your leaf design onto the tag.  I started with my lightest color (Creamy Brown) and worked from light to dark (Dark Brown.) 

When you are satisfied with your "leafy" background, add your stencil design and ink with the purple pads.

Distress the edges of the tag using Burnt Sienna.  I used Smooch to color the hole reinforcement paper.  This is not necessary with a crafting or die cut tag.

Place your ribbon and  secure with a staple.  Add your sentiment.
I salvaged these flowers from an old project!
Layer your flowers on top of the stenciled image.
Add a brad and you are done!

Thanks for dropping by!
Hugz,
Chana Malkah!
