It's A New Day {Tag} @ STAMPlorations

Hello everyone! Happy mid-2020!! Unbelievable that June has arrived; well of course time flies real quick but after going through the past four months with uncertainties and lived like zombie at times (lol), many times of forever unsure day and date, now it's somewhat seriously okay to move about a little easier here where I live by keep following the standard operation procedure as taught when we started Movement Control Order back on March 18. Wow, how amazing is that? Hence the making of this tag "It's A New Day."

You heard right! A new day to the start of STAMPloations June Stencil Challenge. You have one whole month to play along. Here's my tag with hope to inspire you for some ideas:
Some close ups:
 I decided to make simple with style theme so no matter how simple it sounds but this tag took a while of processing everything from die cutting the tags and leaves to stamping flowers three times and fussy cutting the petals, plus dry embossing and lastly deciding on composition took less than 20 minutes till satisfaction {smile}. Satisfaction is priority isn't it?
I love the faux stitching look on the tag which I mounted on black card stock. I leave the dry embossed as is after running from Abstract Oats stencil sandwich between plates off Sizzix machine. Well just a splatter of black paint for additional interest.
The sentiment is from new day clear sticker sheet with 16 quotes altogether. I'm sure you will love the stickers as much as I do. Owh by the way, the flowers were stamped three times on black card stock with white ink pad and fussy cut as neatly as I can. Then I used tweezer to pinch the pteals inward and backward to form shape before I stack them in the center with pva glue. I used the center part of the die cut to place in the middle of the flower and button the center also with pva glue. Yes I love to use pva glue although it takes a moment to dry but I'm okay with that because they will dry eventually (chuckle).
