I've used a tag die & the bitty butterflies covreplate. The colors were achieved by watercolor shimmer paint as well as ombre ink along the top border. After cutting each piece I tried to ink/paint them in the same manner.
The spatters are acrylic paint.
I heat embossed the 'smile' sentiment with clear powder after stamping it with navy ink. A few clear sequins and some navy twine finish it off!
I finally bought a little antique frog to hold my tags for photographing while we were finishing up our vacation in Poulsbo, WA. Love that little town!
