A wedding day tag

Hello it's time for my 2nd DT piece for Country View Challenges. You only have 4 more days to enter our "Use a stencil" challenge and the amazing blog hop which has no less than a Sizzix Big shot as the prize. Good luck, I am so envious that I can't enter ;0) You do not need to enter the challenge to win the Sizzix machine on the blog hop, just make sure you leave a comment on each of the the May 1st DT posts.

My first DT piece was of course my stenciled wedding card. If you missed that post you can find it here. I wanted to use the same bright spring colours to make a tag to match.
I started with the same colours and added some stenciling and stamped and white embossed some Crafty Indiviuals daisies,

I stamped some extra Crafty Individuals daisies onto a snippet of mixed media paper and water coloured them with my distress pens and inks. I fussy cut them out.

I used another stencil to added some patches of crackle paste.
 I love watching those gorgeous crackles appear

And then it was time to put my tag it is

I would also like to enter my tag into the following challenges;

  13. WOWWWWW!!! Oh my gosh Jane, I absolutely love this!! Your background is incredible, I love the blended colours with the whisper of a honeycomb design and then the crackle design. So many layers of goodness!! Your flowers are stunning! The black outlines just jump off the page, what an amazing contrast against the softness of the white accents in the background! Definitely one of my favs!!
