Tall Trees Tag

Loll Thompson (Stamping with Loll)

Loll is asking for mixed media tags.
For this challenge mixed media is defined as:
ink, plus two other elements which add texture and/or dimension.

I've stamped the background on a snippet of watercolor paper using 
a Penny Black stamp that I won as blog candy from Loll.
So glad to finally show it off.

The trees are die cut from a "smooshed" piece made using Loll's technique.
I used gold metallic Perfect Pearls because I don't have any Inka Gold.

Happy Little Stampers has a new Mixed Media Challenge.

I hope the gold shine is glossy enough.

this is the prettiest tag ever - just pinned it - and i think the perfect pearls is just as pretty as the inka gold would be.
