Your glass bead gel stenciling is so Gorgeous Loll! I love your ombre colored background and beautiful poinsettia spray with the added sparkle.

Thank you again my friend for asking me to be one of your guest designers. Always so special to join your fun and inspiring tag event. Hugs, Nancy

How I love your sparkly, textured background! No one does a prettier job with poinsettias than you do! How incredibly beautiful! I tried but can't match your artistry with those. You always form your foliage and flowers so beautifully! Nancy's tag is a WOW! Love that background she did and the gorgeous watercolored pear!

Tag 3 is so elegant Loll! I love the ombre background with the stenciling in the glass bead gel, so shiny and sparkly. The beautiful poinsettia in the pop of red is just gorgeous with the white die cuts behind. Yep, one elegant tag! Hugs, Brenda

Pat said...

What a beautiful stencilled background with the textural Glass Bead Gel finish Loll, and the glittery red poinsettia with the white die cut foliage looks so pretty over the top. I love the way Nancy's tag mimics the shape of the stamped pear branch on the front I love the colours and the script in the background too. x

Beautiful tag, Loll! I love the ombré background with the glass beads (I must start using mine again!). The red poinsettia really pops against the lime green.

I always love your shaped die cuts and that poinsettia is beautiful, Loll. And glass bead gel? I've never heard of it but it's such a lovely look.
