Masking Challenge for *Simon Says*





This is my entry for the *Simon Says* masking challenge. The background has been masked with *garden ironworks* from *My Tattered Angels*, and sprayed over with *Juneberry wine* from the same company. I then cut the tag to match the contours of the pattern. Then I decided to keep it monochromatic, so cut the tree and birds in a matching colour using coredinations paper, which has been lightly sanded. The fence is also a TH die. The tree has been dotted with a few spots of liquid pearls in silver. As a finishing touch I added two stars in white with some lilac liquid pearls dotted in the middle.

It was, as always, fun to make. Thanks for looking & have a nice day!

  4. Another gorgeous tag, Valerie, I saw that challenge but knew I wouldnt be able to make anything for it. The way you photograph your tags makes them look like little wall sconces to me, I always imagine them hanging on your walls, they look so lovely. CoB
