Visbile Image "Face It" Tag (Funky Fossil Circle and Stripes Stencil)

I decided to play with my Prima "Watercolor Confections" paints by making a background for this tag.  The colours are quite bold as I've used the "Tropical" set.

The base colour of the tag is a cream/manilla shade, so I decided to leave a section of it plain and then painted the orange and the purple area.  

I used a Distress Ink in the shade of "Peacock Feathers" through a Funky Fossil stencil called "Circles and Stripes".

Using the Visible Image "Face It" stamp set, I stamped the eyes, and nose in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" shade of ink.  I stamped the lips in two Versafine Clair shades of ink.  "Tulip Red" and "Glamorous".

On plain white card, I stamped the lips in the same shade, cutting them out and sticking on top of the already stamped lips (so that the stencil wasn't showing through).  I stamped the eyes, and painted them with Distress Ink in the shade of "Peacock Feathers", then cut the eyes out and stuck them on to the tag.  I then coated the eyes with "Glossy Accents" to make them appear glassy.

Finally, I went around the edge of the tag using a stamp from another Visible Image set called "Where Dreams Take You".  I then mounted the tag onto black card.
