It's Anything Goes Time!

Yay for another great release from the always inspiring Emerald Creek Design Team!! This time our wonderful leader told us....Anything Goes!!

But instead of falling back on my faves of flowers, purple and dragonflies, I went with something completely new!! Angel Fish and my new addiction....TAGS!! I love them!! I need some of the Ranger ready to go ones, but until then I just cut my own from my Emerald Creek Arctic White Cardstock.

All three of my tags!

Tag #1 - The tag was done with Distress Spray in Broken China and Evergreen Bough and added some white wisps with Ranger Texture paste. The Emerald Creek Angel Fish on the squares were stamped in acrylic paint on my Gelli Plate and then I pulled the print with my Arctic White Cardstock. Center fish was stamped in metallic teal and cut out. The beautiful Emerald Creek angel fish charms were painted with some glue and dipped into german glass glitter by Iced Enamels.

 Tag #2 - Background was done by stamping my Angel Fish into paint on my Gelli Plate and pulling the print, left hand side was done with the left over paint and then I just swiped some gesso over it to tone down the color on that side. The saying is a great stamp from my first  Wendy Vecchi stamp set.It's embossed with the Emerald Creek Onyx Frost Embossing Powder and attached with a copper colored angel fish brad.

Tag #3 - Background done again using my Gelli Plate and pulling the print, inked the edges with Black Soot. Center piece edged in Distress Rock Candy Glitter. Center Angel Fish was stamped and embossed with Onyx Frost then watercolored with Distress Spray and brush over lightly in Brushed Pewter. And tucked away in the top corner is my little seahorse from Southern ridge Trading Company.

These angel fish brads are just so detailed and beautiful!


Don't you just love his little smiling face?!

All the little word tags are from my Tim Holtz Small Talk booklet, I should have grabbed two of them when I had the chance.
Also on this background just to add a touch more color, once my print was dry I stamped another layer of Angel Fish in Wendy Vecchi's Violet Archival Ink.
