More PaperArtsy @ Topflight Stamps

Hi folks, I'm back today with a tag I've made, using a few different PaperArtsy products.... from Topflight StampsπŸ˜€
(I'll list what I've used at the end of this post)
I started off by cutting a tag shape, and inking it with Brusho powders.
Using an old book page, I stamped two flowers from a set of stamps designed by Tracy Scott (I adore Tracy's designs). These were 'fussy-cut' and put aside until I'd finished the background.
Using stamps & stencils, I made a 'messy background on which to place the flower.
I must admit at this stage I'd made it too messy and didn't like it too much. Hey-ho, no time to make another, so I had to finish it.
I adhered the flower & stem, which I'd coloured with inks, 
then added a few drops of enamel accents in black & white, and a bit of doodling.
So, although I'm not altogether happy with it, this is my project for today.....what do you think??
I'll be back soon with something I like a bit more, hopefully 😁
Happy crafting,

Hi everyone, I'm over on the PAPERMILLDIRECT blog today with a couple of last-minute cards for Father's Day. 
My beloved dad passed away 22 years ago, but it's still a sad day for I'm sure it is for many people who haven't got their fathers around.
Anyway, these are the (very easy) cards......full details on the Papermilldirect blog.

Why not pop over to the Papermilldirect website & blog......the card quality is second to none πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
