Compendium Of Curiosities Challenge 6

Linda has set this weeks challenge, if you would like all the details pop over to Studio L3. The challenge this week is sponsored by Eclectic Paperie and there is a fantastic prize on offer, have a go, it's great fun.
We are asked to use Multi-Medium Collage technique this week, turn to page 66 in the book for the technique.  I have decorated a tag with Tim's Alterations die Heart Wings.  Added paper from an old book and Rock Candy to the top.  The tag itself was embossed with Tim's texture fades and coloured with DI inks antique linen and brushed corduroy.   The crown was coloured with DI ink fired brick with stickles added on top.  I have added torn paper to the bottom of the tag along with ribbon, crown and inspire embellishment.
A close up to show that I have also embossed the heart below the paper with another of Tim's texture fades.  Off to look at the amazing artwork at Studio L3, why not join me.  Tracy x

I can't believe all the techniques, textures, and various products you used to make this tag. I would say it is over the top and simply gorgeous.

You know how much I love neat, tidy, orderly, and organized. That's why each Wednesday I am always anxious to come to your blog. This week I am featuring your blog as my blog pick of the day. I really love your art, and I'm sure others will, too. And yes, in my book, neatness counts (grin).
