This totally gorgeous floral tag came from my husband's new shorts. It obviously inspired the entire design.
The Vanilla Embossing powder was too stark, so I rubbed Creamy Caramel craft over it and reheated to set.
The linen has been stamped twice, horizontally and vertically.
Gathered ribbon is by May Arts, photo corners are Heidi Swapp, bookplate is Autumn Leaves.
I looked up the definition of Lapis for fun: a semiprecious stone that is usually rich azure blue and is essentially a complex silicate often with spangles of iron pyrites.
Or this from Wikipedia: The first part of the name is the Latin lapis, meaning stone. The second part, lazuli, is the genitive form of the medieval Latin lazulum, which came from Arabic (al-)lazward, which came from Persian zhward. This was originally a place-name, but soon came to mean blue because of its association with the stone. English azure, Spanish azul, Italian azzurro also derives from this source. Taken as a whole, lapis lazuli means stone of azure.
Glad I didn't read it before or it would have wrecked what I had in my mind for sure!
Thanks for looking! :D
