JOFY inspired Tag

Afternoon all. We haven't had rain here yet, and as I'm writing this the sun is shining beautifully, however it is very cold. 

loved what Jo did with her Master Board, on the blog at Paper Artsy.  it is spired me to play. I had a tag which I had brayed some colours on  which I thought would make a good back ground. I cannot remember the colours sorry, but they are Fresco Acrylics from Paper Artsy.

I cut some squares from a copy of my master board and an old book, I'm not ready cut up my masterboard yet. I added a frame cut from Tim Holtz's frameworks dies at Ranger,  as well as pictures from Tim Holtz ephemera pack, Expedition by Ranger

I didn't want to stich so chose Jo's other suggestion instead. I used a faux stich in black. I added a second line of faux stitching around the out side edge of the collage.

I then used treasure gold on the frame.

Next I added a  flower and some buttons.

And here is the finished Tag which I will be entering into the Paper Artsy Challenge
