Theme Thursday - Letters of the Alphabet

Last night ws a bad night for creating! Nothing worked out how I wanted to & as I grew more tired the toys flew out the pram! It all ended up in the bin & I went off to bed disgusted & very disappointed. Then this morning I saw the new challenge for Theme Thursday & the inspiration began to flow. So at 6am, I settled to make this. Was almost late for work but I'm pleased with the results.
"F" is for Friends, Freedom, Flight, Forever!

Tag is inked using direct to paper technique, then spritzed with a little water to help blend them together using kitchel towel, Inks used, Peeled Paint & Fired Brick TH Distress inks. I then stamped script (CI) Butterflies (free) Flourish (Papermania) Flowers & foliage (See D's) before stamping script onto the relief "F" in Versamagic Tea Leaves chalk ink & gently over inking with fired brick rubbed on with a piece of tissue just to take away the harsh white of the letter stencil. I added red ribbon & small red flower & tied the top with green sheer to finish.
I also made last week's sampler with my Warm Colours piece.
