If You Liked It Then You Should Have Put A Tag On It

First of all I apologise for the title, but this was going around in my head the whole time I was making this. Secondly I'm a day late because someone has stolen May! So we'll pretend that it's a Wednesday in April, and time for Kaz's Stampotique challenge, which is Put A Tag On It. Here's mine (you may want to put on dark glasses about now)

Hope your eyes aren't bleeding lol. I wanted to make a journal page, so started with lots of paint and sprays, and stamping. I was quite happy with it by this stage.
But then I thought, why not a stencil?
And then a bit more painty stamping. Right Sue, it's done, walk away and make some tags...
Same style and colour palate, but with some metallic PanPastels through a stencil too. The tags didn't really stand out when I stuck them down, so I decided to tear the page out of the journal so I could stitch on the tags.
I love these flowers, and how well the old stamps work alongside the new ones. Well done if you're still with me. Lot's of stamps used on this one.
Journey Collage
Vintage Script
Splattered Mug
Splatter Circle
Dandelion Duo
Sunflower (large)
As I hope you can tell I enjoyed every minute of making this, though I decided it might be easier to burn down my craft room rather than tidy it up! I hope you join in with our challenge and put a tag on it!
I'm also entering this into the Fashionable Stamping challenge which is Circle The Globe - lots of circles going on here, and
Country View Crafts Nature'S Glories.
Hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking x
