Vegetables with Ornate

Vegetables .... so many great shapes and colours to choose from! This 'beetroot' tag was once an experimental piece of dyed khadi (cotton) paper. It has soya wax resist shapes created by dipping a kitchen hand whisk into the melted wax and pressing it onto the paper. The  circular shapes just reminded me of beetroot.  I hope you think so, too.  

My "ornate" tag just took me so much longer than I expected and I didn't finish it until after the deadline so here it is here too. Beading tends to suggest 'ornate' to me, so I added beaded flowers and leaves to  an already ornate background and feature motif. Rather an ornate pram for sure. The rather plain little girl was my husband's grandmother. 
Hoping this week to be a little more back into routine, and have the 'window' tag done earlier/
