Recipe Tag challenge - week 6


I have been going great guns recently and made this tag last night very quickly - then spent forever taking photos indoors with and without flash, and outdoors in the sun and in the shade...

I am still totally undecided as to which best shows the tag so I will show 2 pictures, and beg for help on how to take pictures of pearlescent items to show both the shimmer and the detail underneath.

I made the background by spraying Cosmic shimmer: first lime green, then turquoise blue on a Heidi Swapp tree branch mask. The birds is by Prima and the earth image is by Chapel Road. I just had to add glitter to the bird's crown. Distress stickles were not sparkly enough but Platinum stickles did the trick. To add a bit of texture I stamped a See-D background stamp with Versamagic ink on the right hand side.

The heart uses rock candy Distress crackle paint on top of maroon Cat's eye chalk pad, and dark brown chalk ink on the sides and cracks to age it.
