Paper Artsy Challenge by Alison Bomber

I thought it would be fun to use the inspiration from Alison Bomber' Challenge over at Paper Artsy I couldn't enter the challenge as I didn't finish in time but still thought it would be good to try. I was inspired to try out Alison's technique on two tags.  I used Fresco acrylics in Pansy, Lilac and Eggplant on a dylusions stencil let it snow on my first tag and then as Alison's suggested flipped it over onto the other tag. It was quite dry and so didn't leave a lot of paint but I was ok with that.
I used distress ink to add some more colour and make the paint pop. I then used a dylusions stamp

Quintessential Quotes snowflake randomly to add some more interest.

At this point I took a left turn I loved the colours and was pulled towards something else I'd seen by Tammy  Tutterow  which had inspired me so thought I'd combine the two.  I added some lace and ribbon to each tag.

I wanted to add a heart but did not have one the size I needed so drew one and cut two out of card. I added some script decoupage page to cover the heart and added them to the tag using double sided sticky foam. I then added some flowers and a bow topped with a safty pin.

 I added a metal flower and some words. I finished off with string and a small lilac bow to hang the tag.

Thanks for looking x
