Simon Says stamp and show; a Tag

Morning everyone.
Hope you had a good weekend.
Over at Simonsays stamp the challange this week is a tag. Nice and simple. This time I avoided christmas and did a nice simple one. I used Rangers pearls acrylic paint dabber on the background, coloured over with distress inks in blues. The stamp is a do crafts celtic circle. I highlighted that with pinks and some rock candy stickles. The leaves are from a necklace and a metal sentiment. Pink organza ribbon adds the finishing touch.
Nice, simple yet very effective colours.
Be blessed in your art today.

Very cool technique with the paint dauber and the distress ink. It makes me want to run my fingers over it to feel it. The metal word and the leaves are such wonderful embellishments! Super job on the tag challenge. So happy you could join in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
