Birthday Wishes Tag

Hi, it's Jenny today, with a tag I made inspired by the current challenge. It's a color challenge this week with Reds, Pinks, Blue, Green and Yellow. I was trying to figure out how to incorporate all these colors when I got the idea to use my distress ink.

I started by cutting a tag from an old manila folder, using a Tim Holtz tag die from my stash. I placed a Memory Box stencil, very similar to the Memory Box Pattern Tula stencil sold at Classy Cards 'n Such on top, while I sponged various distress inks using a Mini Ink Blending Tool. To get the colors to blend and add a little glam, I sprayed Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl over the top.

While the ink was drying, I cut the "Birthday Wishes" words out of the Impression Obsession Greeting set, and colored them with blue distress ink. When the tag was dry, I glued the words and  Water Dew Drops to the surface, added some string and was done. This almost has a tie dye appearance which is kind of fun. I think I could use it both for a gift for an adult or for a child!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you can join in the challenge this week!
