Drink Me

I recently won some really fun vintage Alice in Wonderland stamps from Stamplorations and they've been sitting on my work table patiently waiting for me to ink them up.  So today -  I pulled Alice out of her packaging, stamped her and colored her with Distress Markers and a watercolor brush and popped her on a tag!
The two part tag is Tag Sale Die #8 from PTI.  I stenciled the base tag with Check Mate and Watering Can Archival Ink - both by Wendy Vecchi and the front smaller tag with Add a Stencil and Cornflower Blue Archival Ink.  I brushed the bottle with Glitter Glaze from MFT.  I sponged all the edges with Archival Tree Branch Ink. All layers are popped up on foam dots.
I'm linking my tag to the following challenges:
I was inspired by the stenciling (I used ink instead of paste) and the drink theme (my image is holding a bottle rather than a cup of coffee!)


Stamps:  Alice In Wonderland #16 - Stamplorations
Paper:  White Watercolor paper
Ink:  Archival Jet Black, Wendy Vecchi Archival Watering Can, Tree Branch, Cornflower Blue, Ranger Distress Markers - Milled Lavender, Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw, Spun Sugar, Glitter Glaze - MFT, Wendy Vecchi Stencils - Add a Stencil and Check Mate, foam dots, waterbrush, Tag Sale #8 die - PTI.
