it been soooooooooo long since I got to spend time at the art table so I wanted to do some experimenting ... I used oil pastels and heated them for the background, then drew some flowers with the just regular then took Archival Ink and did stencil work and stamped the saying "Embrace Imperfection" I thought it was very appropriate ... click to enlarge

I used rayon velvet ribbon and heat stamped the image so it gives it an embossed effect ... this was a mingle for an art group online ... oh I forgot to say the tag ribbon color is really a deep deep violet and the hanging and accent velvet ribbon is raspberry and it's vintage from my parents fabric store back in the mid 1970's ...

again for an online swap ..... using stains on wet tag, then drying it and then splatting with water drops and letting that sit and then blotting to pick up some of the color ... then using Picket Fence stain on a stamp to stamp on tag and last but not least wink-a-stella brushes to give it some bling ... at the end I stamped in black Tim's Noel stamp and blinged it with Stickles and added Tim's Christmas charm a blinged snowflake and some jingle bells at the top ...
I used the G45 paper from the "12 days of Christmas" 8x8" pad and Tim Holtz Vintage Lace and Poinsettia dies, then I blinged them up with Stickles and Wink-a -Stella brushes ... I did a 3rd but forgot to take a photo before mailing it off .....
