She was a wildflower

Hello everyone, 

and welcome to today's UmWow Creative Team post. 

For today's post I have created a tag :

I will try and explain how I made this...

First, on a gessoed tag, I applied Golden's Glass Bead Gel through some sequin waste. 
This is what that looks like :

I then added some spray inks. I used Lindy's Stampgang Sprays. 

Next I added a doily. 

It just adds a little subtle detail I think. I also added some background stamping. I used a little script stamp by VivaLasVegaStamps!

Next I started to work on the chipboard:

I used a green Copic marker to colour the stem and added some gesso to the flowers. I then added some colour with coloured pencils. 

Next I put the whole thing together:

I also added some doodling around the edge and a sentiment. I stamped it on white card stock, inked the edges and matted it on a piece of brown pattern paper. I then adhered it to the tag with dimensional tape.  Lastly I added some lacey ribbon. 

Here are some close-ups... 

 I hope I have inspired you to dust off those chipboards and start using them.. they are so versatile..

I have used only one today :

You'll find it HERE.

Floral set, I used the bluebell.
