I dream of reading.  I love to read. So making a tag is kinda a no-brainer, which for me is good because today I've got the dumb.

Annabelle Stamps Blog has Challenge AC171 of Splash it On!  I thought "let's make a tag", well ok, hummm... a while back I bought these HUGE Unity Floral Stamps Mega Blooms, and really I'm still not sure why except that I really like them.  EDIT: well I went to linky this up & realized that Annabelle only lets you use their stamps now which I don't have, so we'll just call this one a "Just for Fun Tag" ;-)

Blooms were stamped with VersaMark then embossed using Zing in Purple

Next I used UmWow Studio's Circle Mask and filled some small holes with Coarse Texture Gel, once dry I sponged over with Tim Holtz Pickled Raspberry & Seedless Preserves; then I mostly filled in the petals with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord.  After that I smacked the flower centers with Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Picket Fence.

Between, above & below the flowers I sponged Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint & Forest Moss plus I did a little hand drawing with Smooch in Green Apple and applied just a touch of Kiwi in the center of the leaves.

Using Glue Dots I applied the UmWowStudio Chipboard Layered Circles, then filled the three hollow onoes with different shades of Stickles... Waterfall, Starry Night & Purple. While all that started drying, I stamped "Dream." from Unity Stamp Co.'s Make Your Mark set with VersaMark and embossed in Zing White.

Last I tied on a beautiful Velvet ribbon.
