Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #30 + Tag Tuesday Circles

This was a really fun tag to make because I got to combine all the things I love on one piece! My tag was created using the Bohemian Layers technique from the latest Technique Junkie newsletter. I added stamps from one of my favorite stamp companies - Artistic Outpost. I used images from their new Think & Wonder and Ephemeral Backgrounds collections, and also a stamp from their Generation Redux plate. My Tag Tuesday Circle element is a Coke cap that I dipped in red paint and then stamped randomly.

My CCC challenge element - Altered Metal With Paint - is very simple, yet very effective. I used a silver Philosophy tag and added red paint. I love the way it ties it all together! It's hard to tell, but I continued my obsession with Glossy Accents by highlighting the hat and scarf on the kids and also the stamped sentiment. It add such a nice bit of shine and texture...I can't believe I'm so late to the party with this stuff, lol!
