Musique

Hi and thanks for visiting today, seems ages since I last managed to post on here!
Thought I would just show a card using another 'mop up tag' that had been lying around for ages.
After the mop ups, I sprayed some Perfect Pearls and added some embossing paste through a TH Doily stencil and then rubbed on some gilding wax.  My image is Musique from Clarity.  For the card base I used the Doily stencil with Victorian Velvet, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick Distress inks lightly as I didn't want to detract from the finish on tag.  My flowers were made with the paperclay and lightly coloured with a dry paint brush and DIs.
I am entering this at:
  That's Crafty - Girl Power
  Vintage Stamping Challenge - Anything Goes
  A Creative Romance - Anything Goes
  SimonSaysStamp - Create your own background

Thanks again for visiting, I do appreciate it.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your Weekend.

Hi Avril! Beautiful background of this tag. There's something very appealing and lush about the purple and gold/shimmer combo.. Love it!

Beautiful Avril, mop ups make fabulous backgrounds I tend to like them better than what I created that leaves the mop ups in the first place.

How incredible that you started this gorgeous creation with your mop-up, Avril! Every little detail is so breathtaking to me since I barely manage to put more than a simple image on a plain white card, lol! I keep staring at this beauty in awe!! Hugs, Darnell
