Flower Tag

One of the techniques that learned in Sunday's class was to use Prismacolor colored pencils really heavily to color in images stamped on kraft cardstock. Instead of doing a card today, I decided to break out the tag die that I bought a few weekends ago. I stamped the Hero Arts Cling Dots (I knew I'd get a lot of use out of that stamp!!) and then the flower in the lower right corner. I colored it in with the colored pencils, laying the color on pretty thick as to cover the white chalk ink dots. The flower looked kinda lonely so I added some other flowers. The green flower as been sitting on my desk for a while, so I tacked it on and then the Prima flower, since I've been neglecting my bag of them. I used my Stampamajig to line up the sentiment on the top left. Maybe I'll make some of these to sell at the craft fairs this fall/winter? What do you think?

Card Specs:

Ink: StazOn in Jet Black. VersaMagic chalk ink in Cloud White.
Stamp: Hero Arts Cling Dots (polka dots), Heidi Grace Designs- Paradise (flowers). I can't remember what brand the sentiment stamp is from.
Colored pencils: Prismacolor in Carmine Red, Copenhagan Blue
Die: Sizzix- Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Flowers (green flower), Sizzix- Tags, Scallop Combo #2 (tag)

Songs of the day: "Mine"- Taylor Swift. I had it on repeat at work, and I heard it a few times when I was in the car today. "Just the Way You Are"- Ahmir (Bruno Mars cover)...I like this version more than the one that's on the radio these days.
