Here's a simple tag I made with the Flower Market plate.  The background was made with archival reinkers and rubbing alcohol plus a little Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls.  Once the background was inked, I stamped several images with jet black archival ink and inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.  The heart was stamped with the blossom image from this plate with Potting Soil archival Ink and misted with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls.  The only embellishments I added were gold half pearls and a small filigree butterfly.  That's an unusually small amount of embellishments for me but I really wanted the background and stamping to stand on their own.  That's it - plain and simple, but I love the colors and the artsy vintage look to the tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope your weekend is wonderful.

Absolutely stunning - I love that you've let the inky background and stamps speak for themselves - they're beautiful!
