Plant tags - GDT Um Wow Studio


Hello and happy Sunday! I've been waiting so eagerly to share these tags with you since the day I created them! You might remember seeing a sneak of them in my Instagram feed earlier but now that my guest post has gone live I can share them here in my blog, too! These tags along with a layout I shall blog later were created for Um Wow Studio.


I love how real looking the plant chippies from Um Wow Studio are. I colored these chippies first with different embossing powders sprinkling them there where they were needed. Then I added other media like PITT pens, alcohol markers, pencil and Archival Inks on top to get the grungy feeling. There's also more than one coat of embossing powders in the pieces in order to achieve the natural look.

All the tags are assembled the same way, only the colors change in each one. For the daisy I used yellow and made the ribbon into a bow to give it a slightly feminine look and also to balance the composition. The bluebelle on the other hand has quite naturally blue color scheme and the thistle purple. For those I used smaller amount of ribbon and a black thread to get stronger look. The papers used in the tags are from the 7 Dots Studio's "Nature Walk" collection, designed by DeeDee Catron, the owner of Um Wow Studio!

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you all a lovely day!

  2. Such amazing work, each tag is a work of art. They will inspire me to start a new project. Maybe some sort of journal with plants…
    Thanks for sharing with us.
