Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - I Love You Mum!

This week, it's Franz's turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, which is:

'I love you Mum!'

We are sponsored for this challenge by:


The prize is a $10 voucher to spend in the Digi Doodles store!

As we've already celebrated Mother's Day in the UK, I've made a tag/bookmark for my Mum. I started by blending 'Evergreen Bough', 'Pine Needles' and 'Stormy Sky' Distress Inks over my tag...spritzing a little water over the top. I stamped my much loved 'Agapanthus Clusters' stamp (by Stampendous) using the watercolour technique in 'Pine Needles' and 'Faded Jeans'...then added a couple of sentiments from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts. I inked around the edges using 'Brushed Corduroy' and sprayed a gold Cosmic Shimmer over the top...then added a mixture of seambinding, twine and fluffy fibres.


I'm also entering this tag into the following challenges:
