Cherish Tag

Sharing a tag I made with my new Starburst Sprays. I sprayed my tag literally with 4 different colors from the pack, which created a pretty shimmer. Then brushed over the sprays with white acrylic paint to lighten it up for stamping. The white paint over the spray created a rough texture like light sandpaper.

See how the blue starburst spray lights up?
Stamping the meadow flowers on with white ink and then stamping over with black ink. I then added a couple of polka dot washi strips and flicked some white acrylic paint on the tag. I had found a clear plastic flower sticker in my stash which I fussy cut out inked in purple and added miniature beads and framed. Finishing with big chat stickers and vintage button.
