Vintage Love Tag

Thank you for visiting!  And welcome to my latest followers!  I appreciate you! As you can see, I changed my blog background again.  We have about a foot of snow on the ground and now are in a deep freeze.  I really want spring to get here!  But it's a good time to stay inside and craft!

Here is my latest project.  I took a photo of it at the kitchen table and then used my magic eraser in my software program to remove the background--too many shadows created by the temporary sun.  I hope what's left here looks decent enough to enter some challenges.

I used dark brown ink for the image, a brown heart in the corner, and anchored everything with brown fringe pompons.  Other details are included in the Materials Used section.

Materials Used:
manila shaped tag painted with
USArtQuest Perfect Pigment Cobalt Turquoise Hue acrylic paint, applied with brush and water
USArtQuest Vintage Red Sparkling Mica and Pigment Watercolor Paint
Stampin' Write chocolate marker to highlight embossed edge of tag
