My take on Spring began with alcohol inks on a glossy tag. 
I always enjoy playing with the metals.   I used a chicken wire  stamp and Stazon Orange ink pad.
A few butterfly rub-ons on the upper and lower right side of the tag.
The sentiment was actually the first one I grabbed and didn't know what it said until I inked it up and stamped it on a piece of paper.
As soon as I read it, I knew it was the right one.  It was stamped (Black Archival ink) onto a torn piece of vellum paper heated, crumbled it up and I lightly applied some Distress Ink (Spiced Marmalade) to bring out the creases and dimension.
Tiny Terra Cotta pots that I painted, glued some moss in it and used colored wire as flourishes.  I lightly twirled the wire around an awl slipped it off and stretched them to the length I wanted.  In this case, I really didn't pull on them much.  These pots are about an inch in length. 
I cut a few small pieces of soft window screen that can be purchased at your local hardware store.
The pen nibs are from Tim Holtz's Ideaology.
The tiny dragon fly was from Recollections.  I placed a knob in the tag hole, I believe it was a 7 Gypsies knob.
As always, I hope I've inspired you.  Make some time for you and create!
