Creative Inspirations Paint~Inspired By Tags Challenge

Good Morning Everyone!!
It is Sunday and time for another challenge over at
This weeks challenge is...
Inspired by: Tags
we want to see any project that is a tag and/or has a tag
Here is what I created

For my tag I found these chipboard hearts in the $1 bin at Michaels
and started experimenting with my paints.
I used Sea Foam. Tutu Pink and Light Purple and kinda splattered the paints on the chipboard.
Being the impatient person I am...I didn't want to wait for the paint to fully dry so I used my heat gun to speed up the process.
While doing that, it caused the paint to bubble and give it the coolest texture!!
I was so loving the way it came out that I wanted the hearts to be the focal point on my tag and make it very CAS.
I also used the Sea Foam paint to color my satin ribbon which made matching a ribbon so easy!!
My fellow DT'er Sandie did a post here using this technique on the ribbon and I knew I wanted to give that a try!! It adds so much shimmer to the ribbon!!
My sentiment is from Paper Smooches~ Simple Sentiment set
I used Twinery Twine in Lilac, Blossom and Caribbean

What do you think?
I hope you will join in this week for our new challenge!!
