Dark Tag

Evening lovelies. I'm Sitting in my lounge with the rain beating at the windows. Kashmir my cat is snuggled on my lap. I think we are both thinking how lucky we.

I'm going to introduce to a tag I have finished. I'm going to enter this into the craft stamper take it make it challenge. The palette is much darker than is usual for me but I really enjoyed created it. I started with fresco acrylics brayered onto the tag. The colours are from Paper Artsy new limited addition range.

I added some repeat script stamping from Paper Artsy ID08 and the eyes from the same plate as well as a flower from Darcy 07 . I included some Tim Holtz washi tape to the right side and stuck some lace  on top.

I built the tag up further by aging a piece of card and painting it in the same colours as the main tag. To this I added a journal card made and sent to me from one of my  PATwits ( paper artsy twitter followers) friends which I have also aged and stamped a sentiment on. I added a flower to the top.

Hope you enjoyed looking at my tag. I would love to read your comments 

Thank you for looking hugs Debsxx
