CC2C tag for week 4

A really fun technique this week for Linda's CC2 Challenge - "faded layers" with directions on page 43 of Tim's book.  I loved the way my tag background turned out and embellished it with some crumpled book text flowers cut from the tattered florals die.  I added a quote from the artist Matisse - I've been enjoying playing around with my own handwriting, but have to admit that it's pretty hard to embellish it when it has to be small enough to fit in the whole quote lol!

Hello Penny
Beautiful colours on this Tag, broken china is bright and dynamic, a very engaging colour, it has a cool feel but playful, a wonderfully unique creation.

Its lovely - I like the way you have done the black zig zag and outlined it - really effective on this tag.

I love the colours you have used and the black zig zag with doodling is lovely - finishes it off nicely.
