613 Avenue Create Challenge #136 - Anything Goes/ Use Black, White and Your Favourite Colour

Hi Crafters,
**if you are looking for my CCC post then please scroll down to the previous post, thanks**
I'm here today to share my 613 Avenue Create DT creation for the challenge this week which is 'Anything Goes' / twist - 'Use Black, White and your Favourite Colour'.
I have gone with the Anything Goes version and made another tag, I'm really quite enjoying these.
Watercolour Cardstock
Distress Inks - Cracked Pistachio, Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron - (background)
Images - Stamplorations Suitcase and Julie Nutting Stamp
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Circle Stencil - Stampin' Up
Music Stamp - Artemio
Embossing Paste
Sentiment - Dylusions - 'The Right Words'
Seam binding
I had so much fun making this tag, I smudged all the Distress Inks on to my craft sheet and swirled the damp watercolour card  around in it. This produced a fabulous background which I then stamped with the music stamp and using my own stencil of different sized circles I made a random pattern of white circles all over to mute the colours a little. Then I used embossing paste through the Stampin' Up stencil for the more uniform circle shapes - I also coloured the white embossing paste with a little distress ink to blend it in more. The images were coloured with my Letraset Promarkers, although I paper pieced her dress, and cut and popped up on foam squares after placing a doily underneath for contrast. I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and cut it into lengths to apply to the tag. My seam binding was coloured with Cracked Pistachio and Pine Needles distress inks and crumpled.
