Know you have wings

I'll admit straight away, that I don't really like the Tim Holtz May tag for 2015... nostalgy just doesn't suit me right now... but I decided to stamp my "photo" and when I realized I could combine the tag with the Crafty Individuals music challenge, I started feeling more at home :) I'm also posting for the SimonSaysStamp Wednesday challenge (sentiments)

No burlap to be found in my stash, but while I was searching for it, I ran into this stuff that is somewhere between paper and fabric (my mom has brought it from Thailand several years ago for my crafty endeavors). I used a TH stencil with embossing paste and added a CI stamp (on tissuepaper) to cover the hole.

At this point I turned the tag and did the back with a selection of CI stamps. I had already stamped and coloured my bits and pieces: the "photo", sentiment and flowers are all CI stamps, the dragonfly (shrink plastic) is from Rubberdance. I used some music paper and some old book paper to mount the photo. A bit sweet for my taste, but the picture is lovely, as is the detail in those flowers and the dragonfly :)
I didn't want this to be too thick, so stamped flowers suit me best.

So hard to get a pic of the lovely shades of Glimmer Mist!
This is the time of year when swallows return to Finland for the summer :)
