Friends with Flair...May 1, 2015

Hello crafty friends!  I hope everyone has had an amazing week!  Sadly, my family experienced a family crisis earlier this week, but we are bouncing back!  I even took time this evening to participate in Unity's Friends with Flair linky challenge.  I did not do this lady the true justice she deserves.  She is a beautiful image.  This tag is a work in progress.  I like the design of the tag and the colors I used, but I guess I did not use enough of the gel medium called Dazzle to resist the spray.  Thus the area around her mouth suffered for lack of a better word.  I tried to fix my mistake, but failed miserably.  I will be recreating this tag, but I still wanted to share it today.  Just my luck, I ran out of manila tags.  I attended the Adventures in Stamping Convention this past Saturday and was introduced to a product line called Art Anthology.  Technique Junkies had a booth at the convention and they offered a free make n take using Art Anthology products.  The design of this tag was inspired by the tag created in their make n take.  She is from the Unity set, beautiful soul.  This is my first time inking her up.  I stamped her in black Staz On ink on a manila tag.  I then used an Art Anthology spray to color her face, neck, and shoulder.  I colored her lips with an Art Anthology sorbet, a gel paint.  I used one of my new Dylusions paints for her eyeshadow.  This product is fabulous as well!  Her hair was colored with two sorbets.  Dazzle, a gel medium, by Art Anthology was applied to her skin.  I then stamped a dream catcher image with sentiment, go confidently in the direction of your dreams.  This is also a Unity stamp and I apologize for not knowing what it is called; I could not find its packaging.  Yes, I keep all of the original packaging for all of my Unity stamps.  Let me know what you think!  These Art Anthology products are fabulous; definitely will be purchasing more.
