Embellished Tag


This weeks PanPastelUK challenge is make an embellishment.  I made my own embellishment using a button and a brad and colouring them with pewter Treasure Gold along with the crunchy wax paper and the edges of the tag.  The ribbon is coloured with dusty concord distress stain.  The background is crackled and the top coat is mushroom coloured fresco paints.  The image is by B Line Designs and I tinted her hat and hair with distress ink markers.

Totally gorgeous, Sam! I got very inspired by Leandra at the NEC, so I'm heading PaperArtsywards as soon as I can get to my craft desk! LOVE your crackle background, beautiful vintage lavender colours, and the frill of wax paper is genius!!

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
