Quickie post.

Hi Everyone,
Just a quickie post today to show a tag I made a while ago and then forgot to post!!! It's a large tag and I created the background whilst playing with some new Fresco Finish paints.

Had never really understood the way these paints worked, but having watched Leandra on You Tube, realised how to layer on top and still show the lower layers!!!
The stamps are from Studio 490 and so love these and the dotted areas are a SplodgeaAway mask, which I 'bumped' another Leandra term to get a shadow effect. I am not usually good with being painty so was pleased with the results. Hope you enjoyed seeing it and any criticism is always greatfully received.
This little twinchie I will also include today as it needs to be entered onto a different blog post from yesterday!!?? in  order for me to enter a second time.
Well bye for now and enjoy your crafting moments!!
