The thaw!

We have started a slow thaw here (although there is still a possibility of a snowfall tonight!)
I have seen some sorry looking daffodils today - I hope they pick up with the (slightly!) warmer weather!
I have made a tag 
It is a price tag that came on a top I bought but ...silly me...forgot to take a photo of is the back of it!
I painted the Carabelle Studio, Azoline flowers using my Inktense watercolour pencils and a water brush then fussy cut them and cut into the flowers to give them a little dimension.
Here it is on a pink backing.
It seems to change the colours slightly!

I am entering challenges at...

Simon Says Stamp Monday - In My Garden

Tag Tuesday - Spring Flowers  I don't know what flowers these are but they remind me of some Camellias we saw the other week!

Moo Mania and More - Think Of Spring I am! I am!

Thanks for looking, Chris

What a wonderful tag this is! Thanks a bunch for joining Moo Mania & More dear Chris! The stamp images and the 3D effect you achieved - so perfect - this is a gorgeous piece of recycling art !
Happy Sunday and new week ahead! Here the snow is still around, but I think it will get warmer next week and than hopefully it will all melt and as I can hear from the birds in the garden - spring is just around the corner!Hope the daffodils will heal!
