Monthly Blog Hop.....................

........................With Artistic Outpost, yes it's that time of the month where we showcase some of the fabulous images available from Artistic Outpost and this month we are highlighting  A LOVELY DAY.
I decided I would go for a definite SPRING theme for my tag accordion using this wonderful versatile set of images.
My background has been created using a mini daisy cluster Crafter's Workshop template, applying VersaMark ink through the template and embossing with clear embossing powder and then blending broken china Distress Ink over the top. I felt this was a perfect backdrop for these images, very Spring like.
My images have been stamped in coffee archival ink and coloured with Distress Inks.  I have added dimensional flowers using the Tattered Pinecone die and little blooms to her basket, along with a small dimensional egg in the bottom corner. The image has been machine stitched to some hessian ribbon and the tag background. Simple Pleasures, a perfect sentiment for the image has been added to the top.
I love the bicycle image ( really must stamp this on a card multiple times, they would look great in a row!) again stamped with archival ink and a few simple blooms added to the basket.  The image has again been machine stitched into place.
I love the windmill image, perfect Spring scene with the meadow below, with a little colour added using my Distress Inks.
This is the reverse of my accordion, again florals added in the background from the Crafter's Workshop template.
The images have again been machine stitched into place, coloured with Distress Inks and a little dimension added with the mini eggs in one corner.
A little more interest is added with a little bunny and rosette.

My fellow Design Team members have created some fabulous pieces using these images, pop along and be inspired along the way.
