A golden purple mixed media tag

A winner at Lindy's Gang
for May challenge

Here's a mixed media tag I've made for May challenge at Lindy's Gang blog, with this majestic pallete:
I was also inspired by the April challenge at Mixedmedia Place blog, with this beautiful moodboard:

I started by cutting a tag from a thin chipboard, then covered it with a good layer of Finnabair white gesso.
Next I wet the tag with water and applied Magnolia Magenta Gold Magical shaker, and let it run all over the tag.
I used 49 and Market stamp 1787 with embossing ink and heat embossed with King Midas Gold ep.
Look how beautiful it looks:
I've made some embellies - for the flower I colored a watercolor paper with Summer Lovin Sun flat spray 
Then I stampped a flower in layers, using embossing ink. I used Purely White ep on all of them, but tried several combinations with Sunrise Salmon Gold  ep and Caesar's Gold ep:
I colored watercolor paper one with Hi Maintenance Magenta spray, and the other one with a combination of Raspbery Lemonade flat spray with Oom Pah Pah Pink shaker and Alpine Ice Rose shaker:
On the purple one I stamped leaves and heat embossed them with Tannenbaum Green Gold ep:
From the pink one I die cut some leaves:
I also die cut more shapes of leaves, and colored some with Antique Gold shaker:
The others with Grab a Guy Gold spray and heat embossed them with Sunrise Salmon Gold:

I glued all the elements on the tag, using Finnabair Soft Matt Gel, added some sissal and gold glass beads:
 For the final touch I brushed with white gesso and also sprinkled it here and there:

Circles of lights and colors - CSI case file no. 281

Top 3 at Sketches in Thyme 

I'm late with my DT work for the new case file at CSI, case file no. 281, with this beautiful inspiration photo:
I used the sketch as a starting point, mostly inspired by big circle. As for the clues, I've used: woodgrain, cameras, stamps, globe, winges things/animal (butterflies), a label (and placed my journaling on it), pie charts, numbers and a light bulb.
First, I stamped here and there with 49 and Market stamp, Pascale's 1878. Then I stampped the Stamppers Anonymous' circles stamp with clear embossing ink and used Lindy's Purely White ep.
Next, I spllattered Lindy's sprays: Grab a Guy Gold shimmer, Yellow of the Seas Gold shimmer and Sassy Sapphire shimmer.

It was a great opportunity to use all those scraps, I just picked scraps in the matching colors of the challenge, and made some pie charts with them. Then I die cut circles and rings.
The grayish woodgrain paper is from Altair Art, and so are the fussy cut butterflies.
Here're some close-ups on the details:
