Eclectic Ellapu May challenge *

Hello everyone

Fot the May challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu this month I have created another tag.  Not quite shabby chic - just plain and simple.  I used a stencil and modelling paste for the background, then painted it all cream.  On the raised areas I painted using pink inka gold,  I used velvet ribbon and braid around the edges to tidy it up a little.  I decorated it using some mulberry roses and fabric leaves.  For a couple of the flatter flowers dotted about I pulled a rose apart and scrunched it together to make it look like a smaller flower.  I used silk ribbon for the bow and the handle.  I made a stickpin using swarvoski crystals - yes real ones I had bought a while back for a really special project.  Didn't want them gathering dust lol.

That's it for now folks just the pics to follow.

Hope you enjoyed your visit and I really hope to see you  over at Eclectic Ellapu for this months challenge of anything goes.
