Africa

 Hi All, I had so much fun making this tag for the prompt Africa.  I am not much of a painter so I guess that's why I am so happy with my result.  I sprayed my tag with some Glitz Spritz just to get it wet and add some more shimmer, then I used my wet paint brush to paint on pink, yellow and blue Yasutomo paints, they already have some shimmer but last time I tried them they were really thick.  Wetting the tag was key to getting a light clean coat I think.  Both images were from the Graphics Fairy, I mounted the Zebra on some foam dots and added the blue jewels.  The black lines in the pale yellow ribbon are supposed to look like zebra print, lol.  I had fun getting out of my comfort zone and painting this tag. That's it, thanks for stopping by.  ~Diane
