My Tag for Arlene's June Tag Swap 2010

HERE IT IS!!! My tag for Arlene's June Tag Swap. The theme was "Postcards from Paris" and "Vintage Collage". This was my very first swap and I had sooo much fun doing it. I made 9 tags in an assembly line and I was pumping embellies out like a factory LOL!
Here's a close up of the mini postcards - you can even see the mini stamps in the corners. I used crackle accents on the images and I really like how they turned out. I also used Marcasite Embossing Powder for the Eiffel Tower image in the Visual Artistry Collection Stampers Anonymous Clear Stamps - French Market set to mimic the tower lights at night - sooo pretty. You can see it twinkle on the you tube video to the left.

Here's a close up of the flower where I used glitter gold 3D paint (I love this stuff) to add shimmer and stiffness to the flower. I used gold perfect pearls powder mixed with water to glimmer the background and leaves.

Thanks so much, Arlene, for hosting and to the ladies in my group - I can't wait to receive your tags and showcase them here.
I'm truly addicted to swaps and I'll be joining more so stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by!
