This tag was a total blast to create. I used a lot of different techniques...even got out my sewing machine to give it a little touch of whimsy vintage!

This is what I started with....keep in mind that I usually don't have a clue what my project will develop into while I'm creating and taking these pictures. At this point I had painted on a layer of Blue Ice Pearl Terri Sproul Mixer over the stamped bird image on the paperclay.

Here's a close up of the bird image on the paperclay. I used tea dye distress ink of the edges and printed out the word LOVE and glued it on using Crystal Lacquer.

After roughing up the edges a bit with the Zutter Distrezz It All, I inked the edges with tea dye distress ink and ran it through my sewing machine....even sewing a little heart in the corner.

I painted inside the heart with Red Satin Terri Sproul Mixer and Crystal Lacquer and let it dry - stamped and embossed over it - then topped it with a nice layer of Crystal Lacquer and little pixie dust :)

This tiny bouquet was white originally - given a little spray with glimmer mist and then I painted the 3 light pink flowers with Lilac Pearl Terri Sproul Mixer.

Thanks stopping by!
Have a wonderful week!
