Look for Love - Mixed Media Tag

Hey guys
Today, I am sharing a mixed media tag with you all. I made this tag inspired by the Lindy's Challenge of the month and the colors used are pinks, greys and browns. The work inspiration is from More Than Words Mini Challenge where the word is " LOOK"...so this is what I came up with.
I have used magical shakers from Lindy's Stamp Gang and rest of the products used are from Prima Marketing and ItsyBitsy...like mediums and gels, flowers, stamps and stencils. Here is a small video to see it much better.
I started with a 7" by 4" chipboard tag and coated it with white gesso. Then I did a little stenciling on it using a pink tinted mixed media paste. To add more texture I added a little crackle paste in few places.

 Once everything was dry, I added a little color using magicals and also did some stamping with black archival stamps. My background was ready now and I started playing with flowers and embellishments like clay pieces, mirrors, chipboard pieces and cheesecloth.

Once, I was happy with my arrangement, I added a little sisal fiber and leaves(I colored those leaves with black and white magicals). I then dry brushed everthing with white gesso to bind everything together. I also added a little splatter with white and black magicals which just blends in with everything. The chipboard sentiment is from Mudra crafts and the small ones are from Tim Holts big chat stickers.

Then I attached my sentiments to my tag and added some final touches with glitters, sequins and art stones...this was my fav part. To finish it all, I added 2 butterflies heat embossed on vellum and laces to the tag. This was so much fun to make and took me 2 hours from start till the end...hope you all like it too.
I am adding my tag to the following challenges:
  1. Lindy's Earthy July Color Challenge - Products used are Magical Shakers - Oom Pah pah Pink  Cowabunga Copper, Black Forest black and Frozen Jack Frost magical shakers
  2. More Mixed Media Challenge - Anything Goes Optional pastel
