It's Strawberry Time!

This year the strawberry season started extremely early here in England because of the fantastic weather we've had over the last weeks. And they are sooo tasty, I simply love the taste of fresh strawberries ... especially with Vanilla icecream or whipped cream or as strawberry cake or dipped in chocolate or ... what is your favourite way to enjoy them?
Rebecca's challenge for Tag Tuesday couldn't have been much better: Strawberry!
I started this tag with making my own background by stamping Whiff of Joy strawberries onto Kraftcard and colouring them with Koh-i-noors. The edge of the tag has been punched with a Stampin'Up edge punch
For the middle part of the tag I created a digital collage with paper from Martora, a strawberry plant image from The Sum of all Crafts and the Menu label from the Graphics Fairy. Top and bottom part of the image are embellished with button twine for the Ribbon Girl, some ribbon and a little button from my stash.
The little topper on the tag is a layering of Kraftcard, Martora paper (slightly distressed around the edges) and a stamped icecream cone from Elzybells topped with a strawberry from the Graphics Fairy. The image is coloured with copics and Koh-i-noors. The finishing touches for the topper are a bit of button twine and a Whiff of Joy sentiment on mini labels.
To finish off the tag and because there can never be too many strawberries (lol) I shrank and coloured three Whiff of Joy strawberries using shrink plastic and copics.
Have a sweet tasty strawberry Monday, Petra.

mmmm such a lovely and delicious tag Petra!

My mother used to make a sponge cake in a cookie sheet with sides...she sliced strawberries in half and covered them with a gelatin type pudding...always a favorite!
