Magical Floral Tags (Card)

Happy Monday and thanks for joining us here at Just For Fun. Jen, from Scrap Shack Designs, here with a really fun card featuring the JFF Landscape Tag. Tags are a really fun and easy project to add to a gift and can be even more fun when they double as a card topper as well, like with today's post.

This card features the beautiful Peacock and Eggplant color combinations which paired lovely with the Make Waves paper collection from CTMH. Here is a closer view of that lovely and very detailed Landscape stamp. 

I stamped the tag in Archival Black in and then I sponged some peacock ink around it starting in the lower right corner (where I wanted it to be the heaviest.) When sponging ink onto my images I always start off the paper then drag the sponge onto the paper. I think this method helps to prevent those annoying dark splotches that inking can cause. 

When I had the tag just the way I wanted it I stamped the image again and fussy cut out just the floral centerpiece. I used the same sponging technique for this piece except instead of Peacock ink I decided to use Eggplant ink. Once that piece was cut out and inked I applied my Shimmer Pen to give it a little sparkle and then I popped it up onto the main tag using 3-D foam tape. I finished off this tag by adding some Whimsy Ribbon, paired up with brown hemp/twine. 

After I had the tag completed I layered it onto some vellum paper and then placed it onto the base of the card. For the card base I decided to cut a piece of paper diagonally then added a strip across the middle. To pull through some of that neutral (white) I decided to add some white dots to the strip and the darkest corner of that tag.
