Mixed Media Tag

Hi all, I said the other day I had made another project using one of the Dusty Attic windows with shutters 3 chipboards, I really love these, I need more, lol

So here it is, a mixed media MDF label/tag

I've seen a couple of challenges which I'm adding this too so that helped choose the colours and theme, but I love the outcome as it's really spring like and I'm loving the layers!!
There's a few close ups of my project,
I first painted my tag with some Lindys sprays in moon shadow mist/ Landlubber Green and Golden Doublooms, then added a few drops of alcohol inks, all these I spread with water,
Next I added some stenciling with some texture paste onto which I added some Lindys Magicals Industrial Chic steampunk sepia mixed in, this I then spread through the 13 Arts Wallpaper stencil,
I die cut some swirls two for each one out of some grey board, which I glued together to build them up, these plus the chipboards and air dry clay embellishment made for a Baroque mould were painted with white Gesso first, 
The Dusty Attic bricks then got a layer of brown acrylic paint over,this I added lighter in some areas to create interest,
The swirls I painted with some Flat Magicals Hawaiian islands more alcohol ink, then the Dusty Attic Elegant frames I painted with some white Gesso mixed with some Flat Magicals Hawaiian islands Mai Tai, again I went over in some areas to give depth,
I also painted a piece of embellishment made with Air dry clay this way, this I glued in place so it would be under the window
Taking a piece of cheesecloth I glued some onto the middle of the tag then I added some spare chipboard behind the large floral image which I had cut out of some Mintay Life Stories paper, on top of this I glued the window with the shutters glued on with hot glue so they stood up, I added a little Sisal behind the shutter on the left hand side,
I also used a air dry clay butterfly and a sticker butterfly which I won in a candy, thank you Lia x
Behind the shutter on the right hand side I used a piece of Mini Trellis, but it's shy and it's hiding!! lol
I added some text here and there with a clear stamp and some distress ink,

Here is the air dry clay embellishment, with the second swirl, I fussy cut and distressed the edges of a hinge from the Mintay Life Stories papers and glued this on the base of my tag,
My handmade Foamiran flowers made with Lady E Design Flower 001 and Hydrangea flower 5 dies finish the window off along with a Finnabair Mechanical flower, I then added a flower stem in similar colours,
To finish my tag off I mixed some Finnabair Art Stones with some 3D paste and a bit of the steampunk Lindy's Magicals, this I placed here and there around the tag, I glued some Finnabair metal stars and some Melange Art Pebbles too,
