Be Brave - a tag

A tag I've made for a few chalenges:
The mini challenge at More Than Words, to use the word 'brave' on a tag, a card or ATC:
The color palette at Lindy's Stamp Gang:
The moodboard at Creative Embellishments:
I was inspired by the colors of blue, green and yellow, and I've used an arrows stamp on the background.
I've made this tag, using mixed media techniques, and some of the gorgeous Lindy's Stamp Gang products, and some wonderful products of Prima/ Finnabair.
I really loved the colors from the Lindy's challenge, but from all the month's colors I only had the Delphinium Turquoise. I add green by using Greased Lightnin' Green, which was close enough to the green on the palette. But I wanted more, so I had to be a little creative to mix colors. I used Cafe au Lait with Wild Honeysuckle coral, to mimic the Orange Creamsicle, which I didn't have. I think I did a good job, and I hope it goes for the challenge.
Other products that I've used: rust effect paste (gold), acrylic paint sparks (Dragon's Eye), Art Basics 3D gloss gel, Art Basics white heavy gesso, Ranger's Archival Ink (sepia), TH distress (vintage photo), TH mask, micro beads, Prima's flowers and dew drops.
I also die cut some gears, using a Memory Box die, and add some metalic embellishments. 
Here're some close-ups:

I've made a video, start to finish:

Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.
