As you’ll see, my scanner hates anything not perfectly flat and this isn’t…. sigh :( Looking at it now, I wish I’d mounted the smaller tag onto cream and brown, or at least onto brown, to make it more uniform, but hey ho – it’s done, now :)pink and brown

The words are from Stamp Camp and look great even when not cut up into individual words and phrases. Unfortunately, I can’t find them on the website – I bought the stamp at Port Sunny :)

Inks on the backgrounds are Versamagic Pink Petunia and Pixie Dust (Chapel Road Artstamps image embossed – Versamagic embosses beautifully) and Adirondack Hazelnut for the main image. The face and hand were painted with the two pink Versamagic inks, plus a little Wheat. Don’t think I need to tell you that the main image is from Crafty Individuals.

My scanner is equally as sensitive, so I understand your frustration. However, this is a great entry. Well done!

Looks perfectly fine to me with the colour you mounted the smaller tag onto. A very pretty piece of work.
