Inspired by Ellen

Well today I read the Paperartsy blog and  discovered that the very talented Ellen Vargo was featured. I loved the post so much I ventured straight into my craft room to make a tag. I used the wonderful fresco chalk paints in Hey presto & limelight. I then spritzed it with some perfect pearls to add a nice sheen. Then stamped using swirls & curls. Finally some tim holtz chit chat words. I like how it turned out especially as this was my first time brayering with paints, infact I have had my brayer for about 4 years and never used it lol. 


Thanks for looking, have fun xxxx
