Grungy Tags with Flourish with a Bling

Last month, I had the opportunity to work with Gelatos with Faber-Castell, and I came up with a way to use them mixed with Smooch Spritz. I used a whole pack of the Ranger manilla tags just playing to perfect the technique. You can see exactly how I made the background in this video tutorial I made for Swirlydoos Kit Club:

So, these tags have been sitting on my scrap table, and I just can't stop making them! And, it was a nice break from all the Christmas tags! Here are two tags that made using the fabulous Grace Pearl flourishes:
For this tag, I added a small doily, then the beautiful teal Grace Pearl flourish from FWAB. I cut up the flourish to fit the way I wanted it to fit on the tag, then added this beautiful Prima flower that I have had for years. And, it just makes me laugh because I keep saying that I am so done with the peach and blue color combo that has been so popular this year, but I keep using it.
 For this tag, I used another FWAB Grace Pearl Flourish, this time in Copper, which is perfect with the rest of the colors on the tag. I used the same background as the first tag, but I covered it with some polka dot paper  for added dimension.

Thanks for having a look. If you would like more information on the wonderful flourishes, click here!

Have a great day!
