Mixed Media Tag

Hello, it's been a while but the new arrival has been keeping me rather busy!
Today I have a Guest Designer spot over at TokBobok for their mixed media challenge.
I have used their lovely image 'Lilium', which I chose before giving birth and not knowing I was to have a girl, whom I named Lily! (It's my favourite flower)

I decided to make a tag rather than a card for this theme.  I embossed some acetate, which was great fun as I haven't done it before. I think it creates a great effect and I'll definitely be doing it again.  The background was supposed to be old book text, but it didn't print in the right resolution to show properly. I think it still looks good with the inking over the top though.

I have used the following materials to create this tag:

  • Card and twine from my stash
  • Eyelets and acetate from DoCrafts
  • Whispers ink
  • Embossalicious embossing folder 'Floral Frenzy'
  • Promarkers - Tulip Yellow, Lime Green, Bright Green, Forest Green, Peach, Mango and Bright Orange

I would like to enter this tag into the following challenges:
