Top 3 Winners Inspiration Tag

The oh so talented and wonderful Mariette has created this stunning tag for you to inspire you along the way to the fast approaching end of this month's challenge! You have a few days left to enter so get creating.

Here is what Mariette had to say:

As a result of being one of the top 3 nominations of the Monochromatic challenge I have been asked if I wanted to create an inspirational piece for the current Tag challenge. I feel honored and I hope I will be able to inspire you with this tag to join this challenge!
For this tag you will start with adhering a thin and irregular layer of white gesso onto a Ranger manila tag, Once dry add Distress Strains Salty ocean and Moved lawn on to it and spray it with water. Remove some ink and water with a kitchen towel  at the spot where you want to add the flowers, and dry it with a heat tool.
Stamp the poppy twice with Archival black using the masking technique. Color in the poppies with Distress ink Picked rasberry with a water brush and add some splatters onto the background. On the bottom of the tag stamp the grass/flower border with Archival black and Distress ink Moved lawn.
The tiny butterflies are from the Blazing Poppies stamp and I just inked up only the butterfly with a black distress marker and stamped it 3 times.
To create some depth add some extra Distress Moved lawn to the bottom of the tag with a blending tool  and some Vintage photo around the rest of the edges.
The stamps used are:
  • Poppy Meadow (A5 set)
  • Blazing Poppies (A6 single)
