Spring Diesel Punk

Greetings! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Today, I have a tag to share with you. I started out planning to make a Diesel Punk project but as I worked on it, I realized that indeed, it was quickly becoming a Spring Diesel Punk tag. Various Diesel Punk and Industrial Chic stamps by Artistic Outpost were embossed onto a mushroom tag base. Numerous shades of lilac, purple and dark blue PanPastels were sponged over the embossed tag. More images were stamped with Black StazOn ink on the tag front. Several images were also stamped on white card stock. The gorgeous dame was watercolored with Wild Honey and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks. The edges were distressed with Black Soot Distress Ink and then wrapped with soutache trim. A purple embossed brad was dotted with Copper Liquid Pearls and added to the lower left hand corner. The Cat's Meow sentiment was placed under an Ideology Fragment Charm and several Alcohol Inks were added to the top of the charm. As I considered placement of some Copper Ideology sprockets, I decided to make them a bit more feminine by added Ideology Metal Flowers. I could not resist trimming our leading lady's hat with a white feather and pearl. Final touches include more Copper Liquid Pearls and vintage purple seam binding. Can spring be far away?! I am submitting this tag to the PanPastel UK Challenge for week #8. The theme this week is "Use a Stamped Image." Take care, Yvonne

Love the purple...and the car too...just wonderful!!! I love the way you used corners on your image. I always forget about those, and they really dress something up! Beautiful!
