Lunagirl Challenge - Lady With The Blue Diamond Earring

While surfing the web, I stumbled on the Lunagirl Moonbeams blog. I was familiar with their shop and was happy to see that they are holding weekly challenges. This week's challenge is their #12, Lady Blue. We're asked to submit something that includes a lady dressed in blue, feels blue, etc.

I created my tag by applying blue acrylic paint on the entire tag, once it dried I added a stencil image with the same color, which makes it look like a "ghost" image, then spritzed some Perfect Pearls in Turquoise. The image is a Pre-Raphaelites painting of a lady with a blue dress. I highlighted bits of the dress and her scarf with Stickles in Waterfall. There's a piece of blue lace at the bottom and seam binding that has been colored with the same acrylic color as the tag. The lady in the original painting has a yellow flower in her hair but I substituted it with a blue gem. The title I gave the tag is "Lady With The Blue Diamond Earring".

I hope you like the tag and thank you for stopping by!!!
