Aga *Day 2*

I adore this beautiful set by Aga:
And here's my take, especially inspired by Aga's beautiful colors and neutral background: I created my tag by first stamping the floral image by Hero Arts (CG287) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the flowers using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush markers. Great technique video on the Faber-Castell site showing how to color using the Big Brush Markers- click HERE to watch. The sentiment (Papertrey Ink) was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The tan background has been lightly stamped with Hero Arts Envelope Pattern (S5507) using Antique Linen Distress Ink. I also lightly edged this background with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

See you tomorrow with another stunning creation by Aga! HUGS!

Oh I loved her set the minute I saw it posted, Jill! Just gorgeous. Your card is stunning! Did you color the clothespin or was it already that color? Of course I love the background and it just lets all those gorgeous colors pop so pretty!
