Edwin with Daffodil and Doo Bee Pops

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start. A large tag to share today and I've pencil coloured Edwin with Daffodil from the new Little Easter Collection, he's very cute! I cut him out and mounted him onto the tag with gel glue as I have a lot of dimension.

I've also used some of the new Magnolia Doo Bee Pops honeycomb paper and I've used this cut with the Magnolia Doo Hickey flag die from the Peony and Turquoise paper and edged the paper with white paint. I also cut some of the Fern Doo Bee Pops free hand into a leaf shape and made a stem from a thin piece of the paper for my sild daffodil to rest on. The base tag is cut from re-cycled corrugated card, then a chipboard tag cut with a Sizzix Ornamental die covered in Websters Pages paper and under that I've cut three DooHickey mini doilies from white card, cut them in half and placed in between the two tags.

I finished off with some paint on the corrugated card, a Tim Holtz chit chat sticker, paper daffodil, some dyed and painted seam binding and some pearl pen dots in yellow.

I'm entering my tag in the challenges at:
Tilda's Town - anything goes
Stamp and Create with Magnolias - spring flowers
Magnolia Mania - anything goes with the option of hearts but I didn't use hearts

Enjoy your day.

"doo bee doo bee doo" that is all I know is when Frank Sanatra sings "doo bee doo bee doo". How do you know how to do all this Chris - wonderful tag full of texture and delight. I don't know what a "sild " daffodil is but I do know that I love it and have to do one or I will surely faint. Love the seam binding too. Very artsy fartsy tag!!

Oh I see a new style coming out in you!! I love this too!
I would love to see inside your head all that creativity just bursting to come out. I love this and the tye dye is perfect with the honeycomb paper colors. I love how you used the honey comb and then fit Edwin perfectly in it. This style is really beautiful Chris.
Hugs Kelly
