Love the unusual shade of green / brown you created from those colours - it's very striking and makes for a fabulous monotone tag. It's very elegant with the faux mother-of-pearl and the stenciled background. And what a perfect pairing with Mac's tag! I'm off to comment on hers now.

Jo Manna said...

A tag fit for ROYALTY. Totally mouth dropping. The harmony is truly impressive. Your poinsettia is also impressive, the whole tag is really incredibly beautiful Loll. I want to come over to see how you've created this special piece. Truly unique! xx

This is a stunning mixed media tag, Loll! The results of faux mother-of-pearl with sponging technique are simply gorgeous and the little poinsettia makes a very special pretty accent. I love the monotone look with the beautiful shades!

Oh wow! Stunning tag, Loll! Today you and Mac schooled us in mixed media extraordinaire! Not in a million years would I have guessed the colours you used. At a glance, I thought you used gold Magicals or Perfect Pearls or other gold products. The faux Mother-of-Pearl background looks fabulous. Amazing depth of colours, texture and dimensions. An exquisite tag my friend! xx

Jeanne H said...

Wow, Loll...your tag today is stunningly beautiful. Best wishes for your hop. I personally, don't make tags. But I love seeing them.

Anita in France said...

What a gorgeous glow, Loll ... such a delicious warmth and depth about this fabulous tag ... the shimmer is just beautiful! Off to see Mac's dimensional delight! Hugs, Anita :)

Pat said...

The colour of this tag is so bright and pretty Loll, and I love the way you have darkened the edges of the beautiful flower and also added that gorgeous ribbon. Mac's tag has so many different techniques which all look great together and I love the brown hessian with the white crackle, and the pretty green edges and centres to the flowers. x
