I used one of my favorite birthday stamp/die sets for my tag/card today - Mama Elephants Ella and Friends. Ella is so adorable and she has several animal friends for her to play with - today I used the little mouse and put the party hat on Ella. AND she's so easy to color with just a brush of gray around the edges - I used Copics.
To make the blue background, I sponged the white cardstock panel with Ranger Distress Mermaid Lagoon. Then I spritzed water over the panel - let it sit to make watermarks - then dried it with my heat tool. When it was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment in the top corner.
For the tag, I used the WMS Stitched Tag die cutting it out of Soft Stone cardstock. I cut the little hole cover out of Hawaiian Shores and looped Caribbean and Pink Sorbet Twine through the hole. I die cut Ella, the hat and little mousie out of white card stock and colored them with Copics. I adhered the hat to Ella's head layered Ella and the mouse to the tag using foam dots. I used foam dots again to layer the tag over the blue panel.
I'm linking my tag card to the Tag You're It Challenge where the sweet tag/card below by Anja Curvers was the inspiration.
