Paints, stamps and tags

the tag on the left I started at a friend's house a while ago.  we made several big tags using her old acrylic paints she found in her stash.  the fun thing besides stamping with a friend if the paint was caked or dried out we just dropped the bottle of paint in the trash.  sometimes it's just satisfying to clean out our stash we have had for years and years.  back to the tag ... first painted the background with a couple of colors of paints, stamped with big Hot Potato stamps over the painted background and that is where it was till I took it off the pile on my table of unfinished tags/cards ..... I added an outlined butterfly that I first stamped onto cardstock I colored with inks and stamps .... fussy cut it out...glue on some prisma color easter grass ... stamped, colored bird, fussy cut and mounted to tag.  Now for the other tag on the right.......this tag is another big tag that is full of dylusion acrylic paints, stencils, colored embossing paste, and stamps.  the background is Dyan Reaveley's technique with brayer.
