Mixed Media Valentine Tag

The color challenge at SCS today
was to do red white and black.
I used this little dancer digital image from
A Day for Daisies.
I printed her on white and red cardstock. I 
cut two layers of lace for her skirt. I
added some ribbon roses at the waistline.
I painted her upper body and legs and shoes
using watercolor/markers. I added quilled roses
to her hair. I added gold acrylic paint to the ties for her shoes.
I cut the hearts out of red cardstock and
 out of my most hoarded Mariposa Stack. 
I added gold paint to the hearts.
 The tag was made of dp that was black and white with 
shades of gray. I splattered it with gold
acrylic paint.I went around the edges
with gold paint as well. I added
little pearls to the tag and added 
frayed ribbon.

I am entering this in A Day for Daisies Showcase and Challenge 159
as well as

I made this tag as a Valentine for my Mother. She is my encourager, my friend and helps bless me with a positive attitude.
