Marie Antoinette: A Tag

 There is an unusual prompt for the current Tag Tuesday Challenge: Marie Antoinette.  I had to find a photo online as I didn't have anything suitable in my stash.  Here's my contribution.

Add a page from an old French-English Dictionary to a #8 manilla tag.  Seal with matte medium, dry and trim.

Add Phthalo Blue and Pale Geranium Lake Big Brush Markers to the tag and blend out to create the look of the Tricolore (Post Revolution French flag).

Print out a portrait of the young Marie Antoinette and add the third smallest Nested Circle Doodle Frame-Its Frame die cut from black card.

Cut round the frame, fill in the frame with a white gel pen and add the portrait to the tag.

Die cut the Clarity Paris Skyscape from black card.  Fussy cut and add the buildings to the bottom of the tag and Paris at the top (The Eiffel Tower was built for the World Fair celebrating 100 years since the Revolution).

To finish, add one of the Clarity KISS Words stickers.
