keeping it simple..

well on a chilly day..
here i am with another tag.
.i made a while ago...
those of you who pop across here will know i LOve my dress form
and here is a simple tag i made using it:
the background was coloured with...distress ..of course..
and edged with black soot distress..
i over stamped the background with a small script stamp
in brushed pewter distress stain..
these metallic distress stains are yummy!!!
the dress form was , unusually for me cut from white,
and a crumpled and torn tissue skirt added ..
i smooshed (technical term) this into picket fence and brushed pewter distress..
finally some wings covered in .....
my favourite lose rock candy glitter..
made from clearly for art white..
a flower..
a heart of course..
and some liquid pearls..
thanks for stopping by
your comments and
company mean such a lot to me...
i am entering this for the following competitions:
have a fun and inky day!
