A tag

Love this pixie, beautiful image! it´s from A day for Daisies and I made this tag to play at their challenge blog. All papers are from my stash as are the embellishments. I started by giving shape to a scrap piece of red cardstock, I used a template I found at Lilly of the Valley place that I modified a bit.
Then I cut a piece of this gorgeous embossed vellum paper and placed it on the tag, and on top of this layer I glued a piece of this gift wrap paper I used as patterned paper. I glued clear sequins around the patterned paper, once it was dry I pierced the holes to stitch light pink seed beads with white embroidery floss.
I colored the image with colored pencils and used mineral oil to blend the wax. Glittered the pixie wings and cut carefully around before placing the image with foam tape on the tag. I finished it with a piece of tinsel that I stapled it to the tag.

I´m playing at:
A day for daisies challenge #8: tinsel and tags
CES challenge #17: anything goes
Allsorts challenge #83: anything goes
Pile it on challenge #48: gift wrapping or tags
Paper sundaes challenge #49: cut it out
Aly´s Sunday challenge #32: anything goes
ColourQ #64
For fun: anything goes

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 500 so far !

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

Have you entered my new candy

WOW! I adore this tag! Your coloring is perfect for this image, so soft and subtle. I love the sequin border. I have tons of sequins and was going to get rid of them. Now I think I'll rethink this purging! I love how you did the wings! Gorgeous!
