An arty spritz and flick, compendium of curiosities challenge 13

Well the challenge this time over at compendium of curiosities challenge , hosted by the lovely Linda is spritz and flick.
All the details of this great technique can be found on vol 2  page 42, i love this technique it is one of my favourites! Why don't you pop across here and join in, the lucky winner will win $25 from simon says stamp . so here is mine:
Before using the fab technique, I stamped the face and masked of the eye..then created the tag using spritz and flick.
 I added a quote, some embossed pen nibs and some silver wings ..embossed and cut from ranger foil.

 This is not my normal style and the jury is still out on this for me!? Think I must be going through an experimental phase!

I am entering this for the following challenges:

  10. Trace, thank you for my lovely comment, it has made my day! I love your tag, and masking off the eye was a brilliant idea. Your blending is fab and the colours you've chosen are just right. Those wings are brilliant! I've not used the Ranger foil before but I think I should get some. I absolutely love your style too, I like seeing us both evolve. Michelle xx
