Tag tutorial for Lindy's Stamp Gang

Hi everyone, today I've got a tutorial on how to make this sweet tag.  It's part of a large 60cm by 90cm canvas that I am creating with around thirty tags.  It will be  showcasing a variety of techniques and mediums, but all featuring the gorgeous products by Lindy's, as well as Couture Creations dies.
Here's is my tag....
I sprayed my muslin using "I'm Late, I'm Late Slate" and "C'est la vie Cerise"
(The lace was used on a different tag which I'll show you later on)
I actually used the Couture Creations "Honeypot" die as a stamp with the "C'est la vie Cerise" spray to create a subtle background layer.  I then stamped a crackle pattern in black ink.  I die cut "Honeypot" and heat embossed the cut using "Angel Wings Gold".  I then attached the muslin and diecut as shown.
I cut two of the "Classic Vine" die, using one to frame my photo, with the second one layered underneath. This is where I got a bit tricky.  I mixed some "Merry Go Round Green" embossing powder with "Morning Glory Azure" and embossed the top diecut. 
Then I wanted a slight contrast and to make it darker for depth, so I added a little "Queen Sheba Silver" embossing powder to my custom mix and heat embossed the second diecut. 
(You can see the colour difference in the photo below.)
And just for a little extra inspiration, here are a few more tags I created using the March Challenge colours.
Happy scrapping,
