Tim Times Ten Grand Give-A-Way Challenge: Day Four

Good Morning Ladies,
Here are the requirements for day four of the Tim Holtz tag challenge over at
A four panel accordion tag, spring/spring break, fun, sun, activities. One word cut out and inked. Decorate the front and that back of this accordion tag.
I have never been on spring my tag is spring....A Walk In My Dad's Spring Gardens. My dad has flower gardens ....well let's just say flower gardens are my dad's whole yard. I like the idea of adding photos of my dad's flowers.

 This is the front of my tag. I used a K& Company paper for my tag base. It was paper so I cut two and a cardstock piece to make it sturdy. All three of these are glued together. I then took my tag bases and scored it on the score-pal and folded it. I creased extra heavy since I had three thickness to score through. I cut my words with alpha sizzix dies on adhesive backed cardstock. I inked the letters with andirondak lettuce die ink. The flowers are hand stamped and colorized with Prima color pencil and Gamso.. I hand cut the images out. These images are from Heartfelt Creations. I am in love with their stamps. My photo mats are textured paper from US Art Quest. The ties at the top are made from vintage paper ribbon.
 This is the backside of my tag. The big purple flower  is stamped, colorized with Prisma pencil and Gamsol. It has three layers and the petals are curled. I added a touch of stickles to this flower.The stamp company for this flower is heartfelt creations. The puppy is stamped, cut out and colorized with Prisma pencil and gamsol. The butterfly is a metal embellishment. The last flower is stamped on a shiny textured white paper that I colorized with alcohol inks from ranger. The stamp company is outlines.
 This is a close up of my letters. Boy were they hard to ink...they are tiny...
A close up of the butterfly...I had to add some metal...
This challenge was fun once I got started...LOL I was a little worried this morning. But what is a challenge if it's not challenging.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
