12 Days of Xmas Tag Techniques- 50 Shades

My 12 Days of Xmas Tag Techniques has now resumed because although I am still not bright and Breezy my lovely Crafty Friend Yvonne Froehlich has been kind enough to do a "Guest Spot" for me. I asked her last week and she took time out from her very busy schedule and her early Xmas day to to this gorgeous take on 50 Shades of Gray for me.
Thank you Yvonne I love this tag, I think it is really inventive and I love your
Vintage Shades of Grey - No I'm not being cheeky!!!??

In Yvonnes own words this is how the Tag was made :-
I started with pearlised card which I coloured with white, black and grey Panpastels. I then used the Water droplets background stamp which I acquired from the amazing "Designs by Ryn". I made the two large flowers with tissue tape and finished them with a gem in the centre. The flower at the top I made using my Melt pot and UTEE which I then poured into a mould. The motto of Live the life you imagined was also made with melted UTEE which I stamped into before it set. Finished off with spotty and silver ribbons. Tissue tape was also used in the top right hand corner of the tag.
So whats this all about? its a 12 Tags of XMAS BLOG HOP here is what you do to join in:
