 First, I covered the tag in Antique Linen Distress Ink to give a softer base to work on.

I then used Antique Linen Distress Ink and the Tag Inkables Set 1 to create some texture on the background.

Next, I used the Rusty Hinge ink to stamp the smaller of the dandelion heads and Brushed Corduroy to stamp the larger dandelion and repeated with Frayed Burlap and Pumice Stone inks. I also added some more detail along the top of the tag by using a Dinkable from Set 7 and Antique Linen.

 I then stamped several of the butterflies from each of the sets using Walnut Stain, Gathered Twigs and Frayed Burlap.


I also stamped them onto heat resistant acetate along with the Pocket Watch, which I embossed using ultra fine embossing powder. After allowing them to dry thoroughly I coloured the backs of the butterflies using alcohol pens. You could also use the MDF Pocketwatch which would look really good if painted and then added to your project.

 Next, I stamped the sentiment using Ground Espresso Archival Ink after using Antique Linen to colour the card. I then cut the sentiment into individual words in order to place them on the tag.


I cut a circle of card and using Antique Linen coloured the card and then stencilled through using the same ink and one of the texture Discs from Set 2. I wanted to provide a backing for the watch to make it look more realistic.

 Finally, I edged the tag with Antique linen followed by Frayed Burlap and Used Collage Medium to stick everything to the tag. I also outlined the words to make them stand out a bit more and added a shadow to the pocket watch.


Many thanks for looking at the blog today, I hope you all get a chance to do some crafting over the next few days.
