Red and Black for Grungy Monday

After trying two different black cardstocks, I went back to painting a manila tag for this week's Grungy Monday challenge.  It's a Shabby Chic technique that Tim used on one of his Christmas tags , but Linda's guest designers have employed the technique for beautiful 3-dimensional creations, too.  (I have only 2 colors of dabbers, plus white and pearl, so I used red acrylic paint over the black paint.)

Hello Evelyn, it is so cold here this morning, I am going to hide in my craft room today.
Thanks for your lovely comment on my Dragonfly.
This Tag is a stunner, love the red, but then it is my favourite colour.
You said you painted the red acrylic over the black how come it did not cover the image?
I am a pain as I always ask you questions!
