A Little Shabby.....

I was playing with some textures and color with I decided to create a couple of shipping tags with Marion Smith's new "Scarlet" printable digitals that you can purchase at
Using a stucco/gesso mixture and a mask created texture on the paper cover tags. Then spraying different mist here and there to add color/tones to the tags...and splats of glimmer mist!!!
On this blue-ish tone tag, I made a sikly handmade flower with pearls, tucked in some colored Petaloo (color me crazy) flowers cut in half. Took a tag embellishment cut from "Scarlet" embellishment digital sheet, cut the tag in half and tucked behind the silky flower. Punched out a butterfly also out of the "Scarlet" digital page...Also added texture and painted the chipboard cherry blossom piece. Last bit of touches was adding vintage seqins and pearl stickpin... 


This tag with demask stucco/gesso texture background with pinks/brown tones of shabby chic!
Distressed a paper doily, with fuzzy cutting out rose, butterfly, and lady digital embellishments from the "Scarlet" digital collection. Of course this little tag needed some vintage frames and pink flowers with lace and seam binding....
Here are some pics of the steps for creating the backgrounds...
Digital papers covering the tags
Adding texture with stucco/gesso with Prima Masks....

Adding color with different mists...
don't forget the splatters!!!!
