Spring is in the Air

This weeks theme @ Drunken Stampers is "Faux Wood", they suggested to....Ink it up, emboss it, color it any way you would like. I have had this piece of faux wood paper for a long while and decided it was time to be used. I chose to make the flowers from the wood. I distressed the edges of the tag and embossed it with Gold UTEE also using the UTEE for the stamped words and splatters. The flowers were sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays (from top to bottom) Amaryllis Burgundy, Creme Brulee, French Lilac Violet, Tibetin Poppy Blue, Dark Chocolate Truffle, all the center flowers are Bayou Boogie Gold.
This piece qualified for a few more challenges so it has been entered in the following:
Gingersnap Creations # 92 Jewel Colors + Gold
Three Muses "Spring"
Dragons Dream Tag It On "Buttons and Bows"
Enjoy each moment of each day... hugs and kisses Toni

Wow Toni! What beautiful use of faux wood! I love the embossing that creates "gilt" edges!

Thanks for joining us at the Drunken Stampers craft pub!
