October MIxed Media at Crafting By Designs

Hi everyone!
It's time for a new Mixed Media project at Crafting By Designs.
For my inspiration piece I made a tag.
Image: Sweet Peas - Elaine Cox's KatieSentiment: Unity Stamp Set - Fall for You

For the background I used TH Distress Ink (Old Paper, Shabby Shutters,Tattered Rose, Mustard Seed and Antique Linen).
Stamped the image with Rangers Archival Ink (Jet Black).
Colored the image with Prisma Coloring Pencils, TH Distress Markers, Faber Castell Metallic Gel Sticks and acrylic Paint (red for the lips).
Used a gel pen to add some highlights to the eyes.
The white swirls are from a rub-on set for Halloween.
Stamped the sentiment with Cocoa Cat's Eye Ink.
Distressed all the borders with TH Distress Ink (Vintage Photo), added an eyelet and orange ribbon 
Hope you like it! I had lots of fun creating it.
Be sure to visit Crafting By Designs, you will find lots of inspiration and all the details and rules for this challenge.
