Create Magic

Anything Goes this week at  Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!  I used it as an opportunity to create a tag with layering in a variety of techniques.

I chose to feature the magical princess.

This tag started with playing with the tea dye sprays from last week's challenge.  I used it to mist up letters and stamp them in the background.

I then used a stencil with the peacock feather spray on another project which left a nice coat of ink on the stencil which I decided to flip over and press onto my tag to give the reverse pattern on my tag. 

I stamped the image on tissue paper and decoupaged her to the surface. I stamped the heart from the set onto another pieces colored it with pink and gold and cut it out.  I used a few other embellishments to finish the design.  I used a touch of watercolor pencils to add pink and gold to the tag background.

  6. Whoa! Those are some brilliant techniques you used to create this tag! I was curious as to how you got the image to look so cool and never would've thought of tissue paper. I'm now going to run around and scavenge through out shoe boxes for some tissue paper of my own! As always, you inspire and impress with your super cool art!
