Sugar Nellie Revisited

- Hello Sugar Fans -
Good morning to you all.
Anyhoo, it's Wednesday and Sugar Nellie day.  So this week I thought I would start and revisit some of my older projects using some of my favourite Sugar Nellie stamps.
This one is a tag is one of the very first things I made officially for Sugar Nellie. the stamp I used is called Carnival Balloon and its available from Funkykits as a both rubber stamp and as a digital stamp. 

Here's What I Did
I made the tag myself, basically it's a rectangular piece of white card with a shaped top made by using a spellbinder die. The background was made with distressing inks, stamped flowers and words with a splash of glitter. It's hard to see but the stamped flower petals have had their colour removed - just by using a damp brush and a piece of kitchen roll.   I printed this gorgeous girl out 4 times, then coloured certain section of her in with Copics and Prisma pencils, and cut out them out and layered her up. The doily edge was made with an XCut border punch that I only bought the other day - it's so dainty and pretty.
