Lavender and Pearls Tag.

Good evening Followers, Friends and Visitors,

Hope you are all well and have had a good day.    It is time to share  another  of my tags.   I have used one of Imagination Craft's beautiful rice papers, although these papers look very delicate, they are actually, very strong.   They are less strong when wet.   If you are just using certain images from the sheet,  I  find it best to roughly cut out the image, then wet around the the edges of the image, using water and a paintbrush, then you can gently pull away the edges, this makes feathered  edges which blend into whatever you glue the rice paper onto.   It is best to use Imagination's Decoupage glue for this, you can also use it on top of the rice paper which puts a clear layer on top, similar to varnish, which also protects the surface.

Cut out a tag shape from lavender card.   Cut a smaller tag shape  from white card and matt onto the lavender tag.

Glue a section of the rice paper onto a smaller tag shape, using the decoupage glue.   Matt this onto the base tag.

Thread some ribbon through the hole in the top of the tag.

Cut out the circle, butterfly and the lady from a second sheet of the same rice paper and glue onto some white card.   Trim around the shapes.

Paint the butterfly with watered down Amethyst Starlight paint, just enough to give a sheen but not enough to cover over the design on the paper.   Paint the lady, using watered down Topaz for her hair and Amethyst for her dress.   Glue these to the tag front using silicone glue.

Glue a small pearl gem to her earlobe.   Lastly, make a stand and glue to the back of the tag so it can be stood up.

Well that's that finished, hope you like it.   I'll be back soon with another creation.   Have a fabulous weekend when it arrives.   Many thanks for stopping by my blog, hope you have enjoyed your visit.
