Wall Tag 18

Hello I am back with another tag for the wall, all stamps used are from Indigo Blu the words are from the Boadicea Set and the backing is Floral Swirl. I have sort of followed a Tim Holtz tutorial for this.. I painted the tag with black acrylic let it dry and then clear embossed the swirl stamp, when this had cooled  down I then covered it all with pink acrylic and before this dries get a damp cloth and start wiping the pink paint off to reveal the image and some black backing. I said sort of followed as I used acrylic paint not the paint Dabber.
I hope you like
