The impression of that background inspired me to work a rather playful and "lovely" tag. Did I ever mention that I love fairies? Well, maybe you remember this image (one of my very first and still most beloved scrap pieces)...
A lot of different mixed-media went into this one:
I gessoed a page from an old book and stamped the fairy image (a nice goodie that came with an order some time ago) and the words on it.
I treated a small, thin vial with alcohol inks and filled it with some glitter flakes and some hand written lines that came to my mind while working on the tag.
I drilled a hole into a piece of bark (that was blended with some Distress inks to match the colour scheme of the tag) to use it as embellishment and add some depth and texture.
I fiddled a small flower from another piece of the book page and inked it with some Distress inks.
Well - enough about the what and how to - enjoy the images!

"Feenwünsche - leicht wie Sommerbrisen -
landen sacht in deinem Herzen,
fliegen über Wald
( a rather loose translation:)
"Fairies' wishes, lighter than a summer breeze,
disembark on your heart's shores,
softly sail 'cross mountains,
glens and fields"
