Gelato Background on an Art Journal Tag

This tag evolved as I went along, playing with different techniques and looking through my bit box.
I started by covering a #8 manilla tag with a piece of Postale Tissue Wrap (Tim Holtz), sealing with Crackle Distress Collage Medium, drying and trimming.
Next I added several shades of Gelatos over the whole tag using my fingers to blend out the colours.
I laid the lush leaves stencil by iCraft (i-8537) over the tag and removed some of the colour using a wet wipe.
I then added one of my Tattered Leaves cardboard embellishments from my stash (see HERE for how they are made).
I had some torn strips of paper from a previous project which I added across the tag (see HERE for original project).
To balance things out, I added further strips along the top.
It only remained to add three of the sentiments from the Small Talk sticker book by Tim Holtz idea-ology.
