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.
