Tag book 2

I was inspired to get out my flower stamps today and make another tag book, I don't use these floral stamps nearly enough and they're some of my favourites so I thought if I had something to remind me they existed floating round my desk it would help. Lots of messy Tim Holtz distress ink in walnut so now my fingers are a horrid colour! I don't usually do vintage but the flower stamps just call out to be done in browns, plus after this weeks dare, getting out of my comfort zone is on my mind. Im quite pleased with the results, much more satisfying than hoovering or dusting, lol! It was nice to use all of my favourite quote stamps in one place too, I just love these stamps but again, they get neglected in favour of the more practical birthday or get well soon ones. My top favourite is "If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere" but I love them all. And look, no brads! Stamps are by Firefly, Sunday International, Santa Rosa, Rubbadubbadoo, Graphicus, Loast Coast and a sheet that I got at a fair who's name escapes me now. Off to take a brillo pad to my hands now! Thanks for looking :)
