Hello crafters!

As you may know the Simon Says Stamp Store 
is open again offering the $25 voucher for this challenge.

It's been some time I haven't used this background stamp
and I almost forgot how much I liked it. I love circles. 
There are my fave geometric shapes.
I stayed with some earth tones on my card combining
browns, yellows and beige. 

The leave was cut from the Large Stems Bigz, 
covered randomly with gesso and crackle paste, colored 
with Distres Oxide Sprays and touched with golden embosing.

The background was stamped with embossing ink and heat embossed in white, then colored with Distress Oxides.

Hi there! I definitely love tags and colors from some time. 
Maybe it's a natural need for colors in this dark times...
Anyway, I had so much fun with this tag and hope it will
inspire you to try out some vibrancy on your projects. 

I covered the tag with Distress Oxide Antique Linen ink + water. 
Stamped the hearts from Accessorize set with brown Archival
Started to color the hearts and highlighted them using oil pastels 
of similar colors. 
Finally I played a bit with the shading using Distres Oxide 
Walnut Stain ink and a water brush. 
In the end I sprinkled the whole tag with white paint.
