"Dandelions are sunny highlights" tag

Hello All!  Kathy Jo here sharing a nature inspired tag.  The tag was inspired by a walk I took on Saturday.  It was a lovely day here in Nova Scotia and I went for a walk with my husband and Saint Bernard, Ella.  On the walk we saw many full dandelions soaking up the summer sun.  I looked down on a large grouping of dandelions and saw the plumpest bumble bee happily buzzing from flower to flower.  That moment inspired this tag.  

All of the stamps were from one Quietfire Design set, Garden Delights (set of 8):
Garden Delights, set of 8 stamps - Mounted
Watercolor paper was watercolored using Distress Stain in Mustard Seed.  The oval garden delights was stamped using Adirondack ink in Jet Black.  Next, Distress Stain in Mowed Lawn was applied to watercolor paper and the Dandelions stamp was applied in more Jet Black.  A wee bee was stamped in Jet black and fussy cut.  The leftover stains were soaked up by seam binding and a triple bow was made.

A Kraft tag (Graphic 45) had white Distress Crackle applied.  Green burlap was added.  At the bottom of the tag I adhered some moss- it was messy to work with but it really accentuated the nature theme.  Wee flowers were punched from Mustard Seed distressed paper and Stickles applied.
I do hope you enjoyed the tag.  It was too fun to make and I absolutely adore the stamp set from Quietfire.  What a perfect stamp set for summer inspired projects!
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
Hugs,
Kathy Jo
