Card and Tag

Hi All

This afternoon I have a card and a tag to show you, the card is a commission one with an image by Bugaboo that she picked herself for her friend and coloured with Copic.

The papers are Bo Bunny and inked all the edges with Victorian Velvet by Tim Holtz and layered them all up.I used an M/S punch for the lace detail and the butterfly which was sprayed with pearl accent and glittered, the flowers, pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

The tag I did a few days ago as I wanted to try my hand at a vintage tag in pink, the base I painted in 3 colours with shimmer paints then painted all the swirls in a gold accent with added glitter.  I sprayed the lace and gold corner with Inkidoodle Raspberry shimmer, got a bit messy at this point lol the picture I found in my stash.

I made the flowers myself and painted in the same way I did the tag, this made them very stiff so I moulded them before they dried and added a bit of bling to the centre, the sentiment I made up myself and printed on the computer. 

I do hope you like this as it is my first attempt at a vintage tag.

Challenges I would like to enter are:

Catch The Bug – Anything Goes

Pink Elephant – Butterflies

Papertake Weekly – Made Flowers

Stampalot - Anything Goes -       I am entering my Tag

I would like to say hi to my new followers and thanks, also to my regular followers who pop by to see me all the time, I really appreciate it and thank you for all the comments you leave me.

I shall be having a little candy next week with a twist so keep checking.
