comfortingly neutral..

well here I am with my piece for Creative Expressions this week, more fab flowers and this time in the comfort of the neutrals that I love.. So this uses the delicate asters set from hearflet creations, these are pre-mounted and precut. So here is my make:


I still love tags and making them makes me happy...somehow they are the right size and shape...funny how some things feel like the right thing to make!? So I started by adding some strips of tissue tape in parts to the tag. Then coated with a layer of mushroom eco paint...what a yummy colour! Then when dry, I added some studio 490 texture paste through small dots stencil ( that special touch mask). I dried and swiped with white and sanded...adding some pearl gilding wax.
 
 
 The asters were stamped in frayed burlap..still continues my love of this colour!! then I used a waterbrush to slightly soften colour in centre and added some mini gears another thing i love...some silver wire and there you have it!
 

well hope you like my make today....and blogger let me put the pictures on !yippee!!!

have a fun and inky one!

  18. Your background is beautiful; I just love the texture and interest you've created. Those flowers look amazing but did you cut each one out?? I did click your link but clearly my brain wasn't functioning because I couldn't work them out (must be my age!).
    I'm with you on tag making. This one is a real beauty Trace.
