Tag Tuesday -- Spring flowers

Spring flowers is the theme for this week on Tag Tuesday, and as I don't seem to have any Spring flower stamps, it gave me an excuse to use my one and only set of JOFY stamps for the first time. Although I love flowers and gardening, actually using flowers in my art I find difficult. I don't know whether it is the colouring in of them that I don't enjoy, or the composition of the work that I find difficult. Whatever it is, the first one went in the bin.
This one is on water colour paper with a watercolour background, and then sprayed lightly with a green metallic spray ink. A few Paperartsy stamps found their way onto the tag as well. They are coloured in with Derwent Intense crayons. Some die cut grass added at the bottom, with some stamped words

I think it's difficult to make flowers look natural when stamping them. I love the soft colouring you have used and the way you have 'arranged' the various stamps on the tag. It all sits together so well.
