Spring Blooms Tag with UTEE

This week I have created a Spring Blooms tag. I am enjoying experimenting with my embossing enamels, but I only have one silicone mould. I am hoping to get some more as I tried pouring the molten enamel into some of my Prima clear plastic packing that had a cool flower shape and predictably...it melted. Oops, always use silicon or heat-resistant moulds, folks!
I used the feather mould by WOW for the 2 resin feathers and the other feathers are stamped & heat-embossed onto vellum.
I used a Prima stencil and watercolours to create the background on a Prima tag which I had first blended with Colour Clouds.

Then I fussy cut my Prima Princess (Sydney), which I coloured in  using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen instead of a brush and water and water-based pastels and watercolours.

I mixed a few colours with the transparent UTEE to get a blended effect. I first lightly dusted the mould with a mica embossing powder to add some extra shimmer.
