Do-Al(1) Kreatives - Pastel tones

Hi Everyone - today I have another challenge for you from Do Al(1) Kreatives.  The theme is around pastel tones or shades and the image has been sponsored by Sheep Ski Designs.

I thought with this one I'd like to do something a bit different for me - so I made a tag!  I never make tags not even at Christmas time lol.  So here I present my first tag, leave me a comment and let me know if I did an ok job.  Who knows this year I may even create an art journal page.......

I tried out a few different techniques on this tag.  I started by using some 13@rts Clear medium gel through a stencil.  Once the medium gel was dried I then used some 13@rts Metallic Teal paint over the top.  I was hoping that the gel wouldn't absorb the colour and I'd be left some really visible texture...unfortunately that wasn't the case.  I still liked the effect it gave though. 

I built up some layers using a Kaisercraft frame die and edging.  I layered these under and on top of a doily in a multi directional manor so as to draw the eye into the coloured image.

Feeling it needed some final sparkle I splashed some Heidi Swapp Gold spray and then added some micro beads for a bit more texture and sparkle.  Finally I added some cheesecloth, flowers and my image.

Hope you like it!
