Diamonds are Forever


This weeks theme over on Tuesday Taggers is diamonds.  I made this tag by using tattered rose and milled lavendar distress inks and lake mist adirondack ink to create the background.  The main image is stamped in purple twilight and I used a babywipe to smooth out the edges.  The diamonds are stamped with pink sherbet.  The word is inked in raspberry and the butterfly is a mix of several colours and then spritzed for a water coloured effect.  The edges of the tag have been snagged using a paper distresser and damson plum from the Nick Bantock range has been inked around the edges.  I added pink pearls to the left and fibres to the top.

Gorgeous, Sam - lovely colours, even if they are quite pinky, he, he. Love that image, too and I adore harlequin b/gs, so you couldn't go wrong with that. Love it.
