Made this flower with a paper artsy die and metal, painted with fresco mixed with eco green paints for the pastels and Goldens copper acrylic for the bling. Then added cherub from victorian scraps to a bottle cap and filled with glossy accents.

Covered mini grungeboard tag with metal and painted it, then painted one of Timmys birds to give patina effect.Added blingy ribbon rescued from cat [who is now in dog house] as ribbon V posh from V V Rouleaux don't you know. 

distress embossed and inked tag then stencilled compass with Artist spackle, adding more ink when dry.
Ta dah! Hope its blingy enough .xxxxxxx
