Finally a new post - A Tag & Canvas

Wow I feel like I've been gone from my blog for so long. Once I got back from the Pug Rescue Crop everything just kinda hit. But I think I've caught up a little personally and I've got so many projects to share but need to get them photographed.

Here is a tag I made, I used a Tattered Angels tag, used the shell mask, put it on the edge and sprayed around it with some glimmer mist Electric Blue, then used Viva pink and added some to the edge which it turned purple kinda cool I like how the color fades out. Then I added over that at the top some of the pink (I forget the name) glimmer glam. I embossed in a silver the key stamp and the postage stamp. I outlined with a black pen around the key. Stamped in black stazon over the stamp and the "From the heart". I ripped a piece from a book and stamped messages on it in black, distressed the edges some and then glued it so that it was wrinkled and popped up some. Added the glimmer glass butter fly and then over it punched 2 butterflies used a pop dot in between then then added them to the tag. Punched a couple other butterflies the tiny ones and added them to the card.

Here I did a canvas of Elias' Prom picture. I used slate and candy cane glimmer mists. I used the swirl screens to create the background. Added a little black soot distress ink to the edges of the canvas. Took a piece of cardstock and embossed the edges with silver embossing powder and mounted my photo on that. Added the Prima black diamonds around the edges. Wrote with white gel pen Prom 2010 down the side. The little frame at the top is a Close to my Heart frame and I added a cardstock saying I had to that. Added the cardstock title pure happiness, and at the bottom stuck a little tag out from under the photo.
