Viva Las Vegastamps! Tag Swap

I absolutely love the swaps over at Viva Las Vegastamps!  The latest is a tag swap...and the theme: SUN: Let's welcome in a little Spring and or Summer, eh? The theme for our tags will be Sunshine, rays, yellow, golden, flowers, Spring, Summer, sunbathing, celestial... you do whatever fits in!
We made 5 tags for this swap, 1 stays on display at VLVS! and we get 4 works of art back.

I used moon circle, through the looking glass and fairy images from VLVS.  I also used the light bulb mask from UWS for the rays.

My tag base is Heidi Swapp paper with a layer of sheet music covered with a thin layer of gesso.  The grass is MME paper cut with a Tim Holtz die.
I stamped the images in archival ink and used distress ink on the edges if the tag.

I used distress paint, crackle paste and my trusty pen in the mask to create the sun rays.  The ribbon is May Arts and the brad is MME.  You can't really see in the pictures but I painted a thin layer of stickles on the fairy wings for a little sparkle!!
I am really looking forward to the tags I get back...You will be able to see them all on the VLVS! blog once they are all received.
