Summer Garden for Crafty Individuals

This tag has been made using one of the new Crafty Individuals stamps - Summer Garden (CI-385) and the Alice Palace Bubble Bird (CI-371).

Challenges to have fun with -
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Inspired by - for me this is Kate Crane and her journaling style although this has more muted colours.
Our Creative Corner - Anything Goes

The background has DIs pickled raspberry, dried marigold and salty ocean blended over the tag, sprinkled with water and dried then bubble-wrap stamped in gesso.

I used a white posca pen to colour in some of the summer garden stamp images, then the bird and 'hello' coloured with prisma colours added to it.

I also stamped, coloured  and cut out extra flowers to create more height and you can hopefully make out four of them in the photo below.

Some doodling round the edges in black and white, some coloured ribbon and a tiny birdhouse charm on a pin finishes it off.

Happy crafting.
