MCT April Sneak Peek #2


It's Day 2 of My Creative Time April Sneak Peeks, and Emma has a gorgeous stamp set for you today! Bloom Where You Are Planted is filled with beautiful flower images, along with sentiments made with the perfect fonts.  I can't tell you how much I'm loving this set!  To make my tag, I used kraft cardstock with the Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #3 die and stamped Emma's Script Type Backgrounds on it with kraft ink.  I then inked it up with dark chocolate ink. 


The flower image I used is just a single flower, but I stamped it twice, masking off the leaf with the second stamp.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and colored the images with Copic markers.


Don't you just love the fonts?


Here's how the finished tag looked on a pretty basket of plants that I was giving to somebody who helped me out a lot while I was in the hospital recently.  I love how a homemade tag gives a gift that special touch!
