April Showers


Living in Arizona I don't see too much rain.  It's so rare that we really try to enjoy it when it does happen.  My curly hair doesn't like it, but the rest of me does! 
I know sometimes weather can be overwhelming so this quote reminded me that every storm passes and there is reason to celebrate.  

I started by layering my ink onto a manila tag.  I didn't really go in with a color scheme but I ended up with blues, purples, and green.  Once I had my ink down I flicked water across to speckle the ink.  

I took a stamp and used white paint to stamp the image.  I really wanted to have the image on black cardstock.  Stamping in the paint allowed me to see the image and then fussy cut it out.  I raised the image using foam tape.  

Next I laid down my text.  I very lightly inked the words with a pink ink.  

Now it's time to go CRAZY with archival seeds.  The seeds are awesome and there about a bazillion in each package.  For this tag I grabbed my  Archival Seeds in Bubble GumTender TealBlue Skies, and Pistachio.  I just started laying down the seeds in a random fashion.  I did not glue them down until I was happy with my arrangement.  You can see I placed some concave and some convex.  

I topped the tag off with Azure Ribbon.  

Now, go play outside!
