Complementary colours

Hi everybody!
Our theme this week is complementary colours. I took purple and yellow, two colours I love together, and made 2 tags. The first one has been painted with acrylics, and stenciled. I added the flowers with a rub-on motive, and painted over them. This made the rub-ons lift off a bit, which has made them look very dimensional.




The second one is a tag which April gave me already stamped with Frida. I painted the background yellow, coated it with glue and added the yellow glass beads for some texture. I gave Frida two coats of matte varnish, and  mounted it onto a purple tag. The ribbon came from Mexico, from Donna, so fits well to the tag!

Thanks a lot for looking! Have a great week, and take good care of yourselves,
Valerie
