Oak House Studio One Stamp

Hi all

It was One Stamp weekend over at Oak House Studio and we were using the beautiful Sunflower Stamp.  Here is my quick make: a glitzy tag. Hope you like it!
I used a tag to mop up some DecoArt Americana paints in Turquoise and Teal Green (as you do) which I'd been using for a canvas project that I'll post a blog about later. There wasn't quite enough left to cover the tag so I added some beautiful spray inks also from OHS in French Mint, Blue Jeans and Pearly Silver (which gives a shimmer that I didn't pick up in the photo), then a little treasure gold around the edges to add a touch of drama (always need a little drama in your life!).

I stamped the sunflower and also the English Garden Words and in the middle of the tag the Iron Border stamp (which is one of my most used and ridiculously cheap)! I stamped the sunflower separately and coloured with water colour crayons before cutting it out and layering it on with some dimensional glue. I added a metal jewellery ring to the sunflower and a paperclip to the tag. Black beads to the middle of all the sunflowers and a good dose of platinum glass glitter around the edges which is a Finnabair Art Ingredient. To finish I just added a little red glaze sakura pen to the middle of the iron stamp. Love how it turned out.I've entered it into the Craft Stamper June challenge which is Texture (beads and glass glitter).
All the best
