Here's my next tag for The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge week 6 where the theme is to use FELT.

There is always lots of blossom out in May so I went with a pink theme and some May Blossom.  The background is a mix of Picket Fence Distress Stain with Picked Raspberry and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks spritzed with water and splattered and dried etc.  I've stamped the Mountain Ash in Picked Raspberry at the bottom and clear embossed the Sycamore at the top - both stamps from Oak House Studio. 

I cut the felt blossom flower with my Tattered Floral die and added a brad covered with seed beads etc. It's just finished with ric rac and the May calendar.  I'm not sure why it's so pink - it's not my favourite colour and my daughter hates it too!!  Nice and bright and cheerful though!!

Halfway through now and last week I had a chance to finish off my previous tags. Here are the previous 5 - I've added a little more stamping in places and double matted the calendars to make them stand out more.

I've covered the backs with plain card, inked the edges and then added Journalling Spots so my daughter has somewhere to write.  The stamps are from Autumn Leaves - there are 6 different stamps in the set so I stamped them all twice on white card and then randomly stuck them on the backs.

What colour next week......decisions, decisions!!    Thanks for looking and leaving comments - they are always very much appreciated!


  1. Pink and green a lovely combination, love the flower with the beady brad.

  2. I am not really a pink girl either but I have to admit I have fallen in love with Picked Raspberry (along with Salty Ocean) so I love your May tag, it looks beautiful with the lime green backing and ric rac. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  3. This is so bright and cheerful it is gorgeous (I'm a pink girl!)and love the idea of have a space to write notes on the back! x

  4. Lovely collection and the blossom time one fits in perfectly. Loving the colours, cheerful is the word

  5. Another fabulous tag Elaine, I love the colours. You're making a stunning collection there, they all look fab together. x

  6. I'm having a pink moment too! I love the lime green ric rac against the pink - it's a great colour combo.

  8. Gorgeous combination of pink and green Elaine - I love it!
    Wow, you've been busy with those other tag pages too and they look wonderful. I do hope we don't get a straight Christmas theme because mine has been done!
