Happy Hump Day

Hello and Happy Hump Day friends! Today I am coming to you with a post for "Secret Garden Crafts", the new online paper flower store I've told you about last week. For my first post I've made a tag using all sorts of beautiful flowers. Have a look




For my tag I have used the following flowers from the Secret Garden Crafts store.


Tea Roses in light pink (from the mixed pink package)

Bourbon Roses in ivory

Sweetheart Roses in lilac

Gypsophila in baby pink /ivory

Wild Roses in white with dusky pink center

leaves

The filler picks that I have added are from my stash.

The lilac Sweetheart Roses and the Wild Roses in white with dusky pink center were toned down with white Gesso to match the paper better. This is just another way of using flowers that might not be the right shade to match your projects but can be adjusted with this simple trick.


I hope you like the tag that I have created. To see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with, please head on over to the Secret Garden Crafts Blog .

Before I say goodbye for today, I would like to let you all know that there is a coupon code that you can use during the month of August and get 10% off of your order. To make sure the code is working, please log into the website before you check out. Plus, if your order is $50 or more you will get FREE shipping. My coupon code is   SJ10A

Thanks so very much for stopping by today. I hope that my tag inspired you to use flowers on your projects.
