Prima Doll Birthday Tag!

I created this birthday tag for my friend using the Prima Doll stamp 'Pleas'. For the background I used Heidi Swapp color magic paper, then used her color shine spray in chartreuse, mustard and teal. I stamped the prima doll image with black archival ink by Ranger. I used copic markers, pitt pens and Spectrum markers for all the coloring. The 'Happy Birthday' stamp is by Fiskars. I add pink bling to trim the bottom of the dress and added fibers at the top.



On the back of the card I used stamps from the Fiskars Birthday stamp set....added some twine...added a prima flower and stamp a dog (because she has one and I called him chocolate...but his name is Bentley). For the bottom of the tag, I used a piece of the packaging from the Heidi Swapp color magic paper and colored some of the white strips pink...added the birthday sentiment and it was complete.


Thanks for stopping by...until next time!
