Choose to Shine - Heartfelt Creations

Hello Friends and welcome to my blog today.  It is new release Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations and we are debuting the Tropical Paradise Collection.

I have a mixed media oversized tag to share with you.  The plumerias, i have to say,  are a bit of work, but so worth it, this collection has macaws; plumeiras and the collection is bright and colorful. Here is my first project with this collection:

The tag is done on watercolor paper from Canson.  I started with a smudging technique did some stamping and heat embossing and then colored using my distress inks

tag details: 

be sure to check out what the rest of the team is bringing you with this collection! Until next week
Happy Scapping.
