Jo Myhill Inspired

For this project, I will admit now that I used nothing at all on the list that Jo Myhill used on PaperArtsy blog on Thursday, mainly because I own not a single thing on the list (there may be one or two Fresco Finish paints that are the same, but that's all)

I got a 12X12 paper, no idea who's it is as I've had it so long, I then cut it down to 8X8 and I stencilled the Trpoical leaf design from imagination Crafts in Pumpkin Soup, I then watered down some Beach Hut and painted the main square and, the Scraps off the sides as these would make the flahhrs later.  I then coated a tag in Bora Bora, overwashed it with watered down Beach Hut, Pumpkin Soup and Limelight then stencilled the tropical leaf again in Pumpkin Soup.

I then set about cutting out the flowers and the leaves. For these I used Bitty Blossoms and Foliage Spellbinders and a Marianne die that is swirly roses.  Decided these weren't big enough on their own so I stamped various hearts from EDY01 in Teal Blue Stazon and cut these out to build the flowers.  While these were drying I stamped the sentiment from Chocolate Baroque Words of Wisdom series.  I then constructed the whole thing and added a ribbon to the tag.
