Sunday Stampers 68 - Life

I've made 2 entries for this one. I started with a card but wasn't too sure about it so thought I'd make a tag. I'm posting both anyway ;-) For both I've used a dots stencil I made on the Craft Robo. I made this after seeing Heidi Swapp demoing hers here (towards the end of the video) but it was sold out wherever I looked. I then had the bright idea of making my own using the Robo. Since then I have downloaded Dan's file 'cos I knew his circles would be evenly spaced, unlike mine which I lined up 'by eye' LOL. Anyway less of the rambling! For the tag I lightly inked the background using Bokoen China distress ink then coloured the spots using Dust Concord. I used Tim's Ransom alpha mask for the word 'Life' and coloured over again using Broken China (it doesn't show up too well; a little better in 'real life'; 'cos I didn't want to do the blue too dark) The Raven and Flowers are courtesy of Dan - thank you Dan - I cut out the Raven and the tree on the Robo using black card which I then sprayed with a shimmer spray. I coloured the flower with a mixture of Broken China and Dusty Concord and stamped with my dots stamp from The Artistic Stamper. What's that thing dangling from the flower? Yes it is what it looks like LOL I thought the tag needed something else on that side but didn't want to cover the 'life' and found this when hunting through my embellies!
