Crikey .... I've made it again!

Hello Everyone,

I've shocked myself a little because for the 3rd week in a row I've managed to make something for the PaperArtsy blog challenge.  This week saw a relatively new crafter as PaperArtsy guest DT member and I was so pleased when I found out it was none other than one of my lovely PAtwit friends.  Not only is Julie Ann Lee a lovely lady but she's an awesome crafter who writes some pretty cool blog posts too.  I always love visiting her blog both for her wonderful creations but also because I love reading her posts ......there's usually a nice story in there ;D!

Anyway, if you go to the PaperArtsy blog HERE you can follow her three posts for the week which show all the details of the beautiful casket she created along with it's contents.  I didn't have time to create the total project so I chose to design a tag taking elements from each of the three posts.  I created the painted background for my tag as Julie Ann did for a couple of her tags in her 3rd post and I made a couple of embellishments from Fresco painted Shrink Plastic which Julie Ann did in her first post.  If you visit the PaperArtsy blog I'm sure you will be able to pick out the similarities so once again I'll forgo the explanations, although I did make a few little turns from Julie Ann's techniques and just show you photographs of my tag.


The butterfly is stamped onto designer script paper which has been painted with Fresco Finish and edged with Treasure Gold.  The oval is Shrink Plastic painted with Fresco Finish as Julie Ann did.


This shows some of the 'marbled' paint background detail together with the stencilling.


Here it's the butterfly that is stamped onto Fresco Finish painted Shrink Plastic and the oval is the painted designer paper cut out with a deckle edged oval die. 



I used all PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints, Treasure Gold and stamps for the tag except for the feather stamp which is a Chocolate Baroque stamp.

An added bonus for me this week is that I managed to make my tag fit the Dragon's Dream Tag It On challenge which has a theme of the letter 'L' (mine is Love Letters), script and of course, stamping.  Julie Ann has just joined a couple more of my Twitter friends over on the Dragon's Dream DT.

See you again soon and until then ...............

Hugs
Lesley  Xx

I love those feathers & the lovely piece of parchment. The background is a delight too with the way the eye moves diagonally from the top left swirly part to the bottom right swirly corner. The two images large & small remind me very much of a cameo - quite delightful.
