Apply Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, and Salty Ocean Distress Paint randomly to the tag. Mist it with water and turn the tag to marble the colors. Dry with a heat tool. Lay the stencil with the larger flower on the left corner of the tag. Apply a small amount of White Enamel Accents to a scrapper, and scrape this over the flower on the stencil. Lift and clean the stencil. Lay the other stencil with the smaller flower on the tag, and stencil it in. Do this again and stencil in another flower. Clean the stencil and let the flowers dry.

Use an Ink Blending Tool and Mustard Seed Distress Ink and ink over the whole tag. The Enamel Accents will resist this, and you can use a damp paper towel to remove any wet ink from the flowers.

Lay the stencil back over the flowers and stamp the Alphabet Stamp over them using Saffron Archival. To clean your stencil just use regular rubbing alcohol.

Lay the leaf portion of the stencils under the flowers, and ink them in with Olive Archival.

Trace around the flowers with Black Enamel Accents. Let this dry.

Apply a little bit of White Picket Fence Distress Paint to the craft sheet. Pounce the sentiment through the paint a few times so that it's not too wet, but is covered well, and stamp it on to the tag. Let dry.

Glue on a button to the larger flower, and tie some ribbon through the hole of the tag. Finally, drag the Distress Tool around the edges of the tag to shabby it up, and ink the those edges with Mustard Seed.
