Stitched Seeds

This tag has been running around my head all week and today I finally got some time to make it.
For my seed heads and pods, I turned to my spice rack.
 Star Anise and Whole Cardamoms.
I used a star anise to print the fabric in my tag,
I don't want to go into the details here,
 if you want to read more about the fabric painting bit, I posted about it > here

I added a sweet vintage Mother of pearl button and some yellow organza ribbon to finish.
Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my Anchor tag last week, 
I was quite taken aback by how much you all liked it :)
Looking forward to seeing what everyone does with this weeks theme.
