Lavinia Stamps "Floral Wreath" gel plate tag

Hi, Happy New Year to you.  I'm sure like me, you'll be looking forward to a more normal life later this year.  I've started my crafting new year making a tag.  

For the background, I used one of the tags I'd prepared as part of Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags" challenge.  On Day 20, we were encouraged to use acrylic paint and bubble wrap on a gel plate.  The image above are some of the backgrounds I created in that session.

I used the Lavinia Stamps "Floral Wreath" stamp as the main feature of this tag, stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I heat embossed the image, using Wow! Clear Embossing Powder and heat set, to make it stand proud.

I then stamped the "Happy New Year" sentiment, which is part of a Personal Impressions stamp set  called "All Year Round" using the same ink.  Finally I added touches of Ranger "Glossy Accents" to some of the berries and set aside to dry.
