It's all in the Tag

I created another Tag tonight.. While I was doing it I kept thinking this is no good throw it out but I kept going.. I tell ya I am my own worse critic. My hubby loved it..

I first inked the tag and then stamped it, you can't see that because I screwed it all up when I sprayed Perfect Pearls on it.. The stamp acted as a resist almost and all you could see was tiny gold specks. Okay that was an I'm going to throw this out moment. LOL Then on "Soartful Challenges" when Jeanette was explaining about Victorian Valentines she mentioned Gold Embellishments and Gold this and that. I thunked to myself I have these gold flakes I have had for two years but never knew how to use them.. so I thunked again and got out my roll of sticky tape. You know that red thin double backed adhesive. I taped all around the tag and took some of these gold flakes out of the bag and mushed them into the tape. Wow I thunk I now know how to use these. After I brushed off what was left over with a small paintbrush I was real happy with the effect. Added some ribbon, flowers and a charm and voila one Valentines Tag.. I don't think I'm going to throw it out now!! ROFL

I am entering this tag in Soartful Challenges Challenge
