I was thinking of how to incorporate the colors together and I thought of wool knit mittens we had as children.
I first hand drew the shape of the mitten. (would have been helpful if my little one were around or had mittens in the house) I think it looks pretty close to the correct porportion. The background was stamped using StaZon Teal blue ink and the Hero Arts Dots and flowers Designblock stamp.
I added a dot in the center of each flower using my blue watercolor marker. The edges are sponged with stonewashed blue.
The buttons and ribbon are a burgandy color but unfortunately when photographed they reflect the highlights. The other button is a nice deep blue which looks like black in the picture.
I hope you enjoyed my little mitten tags as much as I enjoyed making them.

Mitten update... I am like the kittens... I have lost my mittens...
Due to the Christmas decorations being put up, I have had to move my shadow box where I take my pictures onto the floor in the other room. I sometimes leave my project in the box until after I clean up and load in case I need to take another picture. Unfortunately my puppy who is almost a year old was very quiet while I was typing away in here. Yep.. She was having a feast on my lace, twine, ribbon and buttons. I don't even want to think about where they went. So my poor mittens are destroyed.
