Tag - January - Childhood Innocence
I painted the tag pale pink, then dripped some watery ink on top to give it a nice texture and random pattern.
I printed off one of my Victorian photos, and highlighted the roses and bow, then embossed some areas with clear embossing powder so that parts of it just catch the light.
The butterfly is an image from crafty individuals which I cut out as I didn't want all the picture. I then dipped the butterfly into enamel and it now shines wonderfully. It is sitting on top as apposed to being clued down flat.
I edged the image and the tag with pink ink and added some wool threads and finished off with a few tiny beads in the bottom left corner.
