A Recipe for Inkyness!

Hels has put a "recipe" on her blog for those of us that need a crafty nudge! Well, I am suffering with post holiday blues, or should that be greys - it is so dreary. To think I was in Montenegro this time last week, wall to wall sunshine and 28 degrees C.............(A few pictures here).

So the challenge was to make a tag with three DI's - Spiced Marmalade, Broken China and Pine Needles. I have to say my Pine Needles is like new, I usually find it too dark, but I love it with Broken China!

Next, three stamps - all from an Elusive Images set (now Chocolate Baroque). Sorry I can't remember the name and I think it may have been discontinued as I can't see it on the website.
Stamp 1 - butterfly
Stamp 2 - foliage around the tag
stamp 3 - sentiment

Then some die cuts - Mini cabinet die by Tim Holtz and leaves, and some ribbon. I also added a couple of flowers and some Stickles!

Thanks for looking
