Raffia for stringer
Using a large kraft tag I poured out a bit of peeled paint and scattered straw distress paints on it. Mixing the two colors together with my fingers. Then I sprayed with a light mist of water to marry the colors, and set it aside to  dry.
Gecko Galz Beautiful Victorian Spring Stamp was printed out on card stock, and colored with markers. I tore away the extra paper around the flower's image, outlined it with scattered straw & walnut stain distress paints before adding to tag.
Using my computers notepad program I typed out the words I wanted to use, outlining each with a sepia colored marker before attaching to the tag.
Little dots were added around the sunflower for a little interest, using the sepia marker.
Embellishing with a small yellow button to the flower's center.
Finished with a piece raffia for the tags hanger.
