Frilly and Funky Challenge

Hi all, just been playing this evening and had a go at the challenge over at Frilly and Funky which is William Morris Style,  they gave you some inspiration pictures and I based mine (loosely I may add lol) on this picture - 

I used a damask stamp using distress inks and then clear
embossed it.  Then I covered the whole tag with faded jeans,
next I used water to highlight the middle of the images
(took away with water).
Then I used stamp n bond embossing powder for the
edges and covered them in ink.
I used a leaf stamp, embossed in gold, coloured with
distress markers then cut out.

The birds where chipboard which I covered in versamark,
embossed in a dark red then added flicks of gold embossing 
powder.
I wish I hadn't of gilded the edges as I feel it was too much, also too many leaves lol.

Right I shall be off, it certainly was a challenge and I have to admit I enjoyed playing this evening :-)
Happy Crafting :-)
Hugs Kerry xxx
