Birthday Tag

Happy Thursday,

I hope your week is going well. Today I made this simple tag. I used my Spellbinders to cut out the tag.

Here are the steps I used to create the bottom layer of my tag:
1. I used the Distress Ink to cover the paper (it kind of looks tied died).
2. Heat dry tag.
3. Stamp tag with Distress Ink.
4. Dust on Perfect Pearls Powder. Clean off excess powder.
5. Mist light with water.
6. Heat dry tag.

I used Inky Impressions Stamp Zoe's Birthday Cupcake. I love dogs so this stamp makes my heart smile. I colored Zoe with Copic Makers E44, E43, E42, E41, R20, B91, B93, YG93. Y00, R81, R83. I added a little glitter to her hat to add a festive flair. Add some ribbon and a sentiment and there you have it a festive birthday tag! I hope I have given you some inspiration today to try a new technique. Below is a photo some of the supplies I used. Have a great rest of your week!

I am entering my tag in the following challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday -Challenge #197 Don't Be Square
