GIU 2015 - Day 1

Welcome to my week as the Growing In Unity Gal!
I am so excited so let's get started with something beautiful that I made yesterday (Sunday)
I started off with this fantastic printed (French, I think) tissue paper from Hobby Lobby
it's Gift Tissue so it's in the wrapping section
I topped the tissue with Matte Medium then stamped
After I added it to the blank tag, then I applied Modeling Paste to an UmWow Stencil
Diamonds and the Cicada
I applied Golden Napthol Red Light, Wuinacridone Red & Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold mixed with Acrylic Glazing then wiped off after about a minute each before applying the next color & wiping
Last I stamped the sentiment
