I bought a ton of shells when I was in the States, as I love to use them as embellishments on beach layouts and cards...so I thought, why not a beachy themed tag!! In the end I went for a vintage image of mermaids which caught my eye! I inked my tag in Pine Needles and Spiced Marmelade Distress Ink then spritzed it with water for some cool effects. I used a mask and molding paste to make the cool white bubble effects around the edges of the tags. I added cheesecloth for texture under the image, some chipboard coral and seaweed and some real shells from my collection.
The mermaids are looking at strings of pearls so of course I had to add my own string of pearls to the tag. I added the small rub on words "discover beauty", then finished the tag off with some fibers that I think echo the mermaids hair!
I love the way this tag turned out and I hope you will come join us in the challenge!!!
