This is a 5-1/2" square tag on which I used the smoosh technique with reinkers and gold glimmer mist to create the background. I then stamped the other wonderful images from the set using versamark ink and embossing with gold detail embossing powder. The music was stamped onto vanilla card stock with Vintage Photo distress ink and the edges torn and distressed and then sponged with more of the ink. It was also spritzed with gold glimmer mist. I added shapes in the upper corners which were cut/embossed with Spellbinders Doodle Parts from a lovely shimmery cardstock. The sentiment is stamped with versamark ink and gold embossed before cutting/embossing with Spellbinders oval die and popped up onto the Fancy Tag shape. I added soem lovely ribbons and heated the gold organdy ribbon to curl it a bit.

Karen- that’s me and you are already here!
