Beautiful Tag-The Sequel!!!

Tonight I am posting a finished card using a tag exactly the same as the one I made the other day........just in slightly different colours. I wasn't 100% happy with the black image on the previous tag so I have stamped and embossed it this time using clear EP and then brushed gold Cosmic Shimmer powder over the embossing and reheated it for a lighter look.
For the card blank I have cut a large square and rounded off the corners of the back panel then sponged it with Denim Adirondack ink.
On a seperate piece of card I have used the flower image which I inked with Lettuce and Cranberry Adirondack and then misted with water before stamping to create a soft watercolour look. I added a little more colour with pencils and low odour thinners and sponged with more Denim Adirondack.
This was then cut out and added to the card blank front and cut around again leaving a border which was edged in gold pen.
The tag is then tied onto the card with gold thread.
Not the kind of card you would make if you needed one in a!!!
You can imagine the mess on my desk now I am sure so I had best go and tidy up before I get started on cutting up materials to do this card in a class tomorrow.
Bye for now......and thanks for visiting.
