Sprinkle magic everywhere

I'm joining in at the new More Than Words mini challenge, with the word prompt, MAGIC.  I made a tag:

I still find it hard to create on such a tiny canvas, but I'm enjoying it more and more.  I especially love finding little bits and bobs to include as embellishments.  I started with a base of corrugated card, then built some simple layers. To tie it all together I painted over everything with a light coat of tinted glaze... magic!

I used my tag on a layout:

This one was inspired by the colours in the Funky Flair Studio challenge: pink and pistachio.  I used a flair from the Green Trio.  It was a bit too bright (and not really 'pistachio') so I toned down the colour with gesso, and used it as a date marker:

I'm sharing my layout at Clique Kits for the Anything Goes challenge.
