Poppy tag

This poppy stamp is one of my very oldest stamps, an unmounted stamp from a grab bag I bought when I first started stamping. I've stamped and heat embossed it and then coloured it with watercolour pencils and a fine water brush. Instead of a die or punch, I used an acrylic drawing template (almost as old as the stamp!) to shape and cut the tag then matted it, stapled on the ribbon and popped it on foam tape to make is stand out from the card.

I am sharing this with

A Place to Start - three from five (tag, watercolour, flower)

Have you had a tidy up. I love the old stash you find when you have a tidy. It's a beautiful CAS Card. Love Dawn x

Some of our oldest stamps really are treasures, aren't they?! Your Poppy images are so sweet and look just lovely on the tag/card. Thanks so much Jane for sharing this beauty with us at CAS Watercolour! :0)

Sometimes the oldies are the best! At least that's what I keep telling the Mister! I can see why you've hung onto this sweet poppy stamp, Jane! You did a beautiful CASlicious tag design with it!! Hugs, Darnell
