Artful Times - Challenge 9


This weeks Artful Times challenge theme is Europe on a tag as chosen by Neet.  As you can see, I decided to go to France.  The blue and red on the main tag are pan pastels.   The white strip was masked off.  I then collaged various French themed images and words directly onto the tag.  The mini tag was stamped, cut out and inked with faded jeans and festive berries distress ink and 3d foamed onto the main tag. Ribbons and fibres were used to finish both the tags.


Hop over to the Artful Times blog to see where Neet and Von went.

Mais, c'est magnifique! What a glorious tag... all those beautiful stamps across it, with the most perfect shade of blue in the first stripe!. And I love how the mini-tag mutates each colour slightly... Vive le tag!
