Timeless Art

Hi guys, I felt in the mood for using stamps, paints, gesso, and stenciling, though to be fair you can't see much of that, but anyway if made me happy, lol

Again I've used lots of The Ribbon Girl lushness on it too,
I cut out a tag shape with watercolour paper, stamped a script with versamark then added white embossing powder over the top, coloured it with distress inks the added crackle paint in white here and there, I then rubbed the excess paint off the script, I used a stencil with grunge paste to add interest and texture, it is there honest!!!!
I cut some ribbon type stuff  down I've had in my stash ages and glued it on the tag lenghways trimming off the edges, when dry I added some strips of torn corrugated card stock,
I added some DD soft board bricks to add another bit of texture and interst, then sprayed them with some colour bloom sprays,

I then added a mini bookplate from  Tando Creative, wow love these, I painted it with gesso first then when dry added two colours of bloom sprays and an acetate word from my stash behind, I used TRG pearl brads to finish it off,
The leaf die is by Noor and I added crackle paint here and there too,
