Dia De Los Muertos Bride tag



I stumbled across a long-forgotten stack of card stock that is printer friendly last weekend, so I was thrilled that I could now print a lot of digi images I have been wanting to use!  This one is from Octopode Factory- she came with a groom, but somehow I lost the groom. Oh well.    I used MME paper (the black and white print), the purple is from Recollections.  I used my Tim Holtz die to make the tag.  Then I embossed a nestie cut of the purple to put her on.  I halved a black circle cut out I got in a swap for the ends of the purple layer.  I added some black lace, and multi-color rhinestones for the frame.  I wanted more color to keep with traditional Day of the Dead colors.  I colored her with copics and spica glitter pens.  I added some Wild Orchid flowers. Misc ribbon.  I found my mummy (actually this is my second mummy as my first one is at work) to be a good tag holder so I enlisted his help.  My favorite items to use on this are rhinestones, the colors black and white, and my Tim Holtz tag die!

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp- inspiration picture (I took the colors from the M and M's)
Simon Says Stamp and Show- favorites
Poisoned Peas- Dia De Los Muertos/Sugar skulls
Smudgy Antics- Dia De Los Muertos
