Beauty

Hello everyone, we're back to yukky weather again after a nice day yesterday and I'm taking a small break from accounts work to show you a rather girly tag that I've made which fits several challenges.
I've used the colour inspiration from this week's Play Date Cafe which is why it's very feminine.



I chose a very pretty image kindly shared by June of Dezinaworld on her Art Freebies blog and set this on a mat of pink felt with beige lace wrapped round one side for a very soft look.
I made a tag with a rounded top from cream card and sponged on Antique Linen Distress ink. I then stamped a Tim Holtz flourish design at the top right with Victorian Velvet Distress ink. I next embossed the lower part of the tag with the damask folder from the Texture Fades Damask and Regal Flourishes set. I swiped over the raised part with Spun Sugar Distress ink.
I embellished the tag with paper flowers and scraps of embossed and stamped card die cut with a Sissix flourish set. I added a lace tie at the top and stamped text by B Line Designs.

I'm entering my tag in the following challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Anything But A Card
Play Date Cafe PDCC68 - Colours
Simon Says Stamp - Anything But A Card
Simon Says Stamp and Show - A Tag

Thanks for looking
Fliss x
