I Shall Wear Purple: Double Layered Tag

The challenges over on Mixed Media Art Journey have 6 part and you can use as many of them as you wish.  However when I saw them, a particular poem came to mind - Warning by Jenny Joseph.  The current prompts are make a tag, use purple, add scrap paper, add doodle, book quote and rip / cut / tear edge. I included all six.
Add a piece of copy paper used to clean a brayer to a #8 manilla tag. Seal with matte medium, dry and trim.
Add the top layer of a paper towel mop up sheet in similar colours to a second #8 manilla tag in the same way.
Use a pair of large deckle edge scissors to cut the top section off the second tag.
Glue the two tags together with the smaller tag on top.
Add stamping to the top tag section using two of the Mixed Media Journal stamps in Dusty Concord archival ink.
Add one of the Halloween Paper Dolls from Tim Holtz.
Add the first line from the poem ‘Warning’ by Jenny Joseph using a black Posca pen. Add the word purple using the Clarity Tall Letterbox Infill Alphabet down the side in Versamark ink. Heat emboss with purple embossing powder.
To finish, add doodling around the letters and along the deckle edge with a black micron pen.
