Secret Garden


There's a new challenge at Dragons Dream Tag It On. This time, the challenge is to create a tag representing the book "Secret Garden." My first thought was to use the scroll work image from the Windows and Doors plate by Artistic Outpost. After stamping it with Black StazOn ink, and trimming it, Tumbled Glass Distress Ink was watercolored onto the stamped image. Using multiple images from the Flower Market plate, also by Artistic Outpost, images were stamped on the tag front to create the background. More images were stamped, trimmed and watercolored with Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint and Tattered Rose Distress Inks and adhered to the tag. Embellishments include beautiful lace purchased from the Frilly and Funkie Boutique, Winter White seam binding, a paper bird, a button and a binder clip. I am also entering this tag over at Frilly and Funkie's Sunday Share.
