For today's tag I used the new Pocket Blooms stamp set together with a watercolour background I had in my UFO (UnFinished Objects) box. You know when you make something that doesn't actually turn out at all like you wanted it for the project you are doing at the moment, but it's too pretty to throw away. Sometimes I like to challenge myself by deciding that I have to use something from my UFO box. And the watercolour background was perfect for this tag. It looked a bit bare though, so I grabbed some of the gorgeous new Scribbly Splattery Grunge stamps and randomly stamped them in the background using neutral colours. I die cut the pocket from jeans blue card and stamped the flowers on white card, coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them. I also used a scrap of orange card from the UFO box for the die cut sentiment, adding some Ice Stickles for extra bling. I also added a bit of Ice Stickles around the edges of the flowers.

The background behind your flowers and pocket looks so pretty. The black pocket with the flowers make a stunning contrast.

Good on you for using up UFO's - a great result

That UFO turned into something out of this world (pun totally intended!). I am most curious about the SIZE of your UFO box as I thought I was the only one afraid of throwing things!

WOW! Karola love what you have done here. Beautifully coloured flowers. Love the background and how you finished with that blingy sentiment. Fabulous once again.

So enjoyed your use of an "unfinished" element--I can relate. It was put to good use in this design. I have this stamp set so I am inspired by your creation. Thanks for sharing it.
