Craft It Up & Link It Up "Say it with a Sentiment" Week 2

Here is what I created for this linky party....
I made a tag using another of my Julie Nutting Prima Doll Stamps.
You may get sick of seeing these as they are my latest obsession!!
I used several different techniques making this tag.  I started with a
Prima Tag. Next I used an ArtC stencil and Tim Holtz Distress ink
to stencil a pattern to the corners of the tag.  The stencil was called
Houndstooth, but I thought it looked like bats!!  Next I sprayed the
entire tag with Tsukineko Goosebumps Glimmer Texture Spray.
This spray gave the tag a very cool bumpy texture that glimmers.
It is hard to see in the photos, but this tag has a lot of texture and
shine!!   I inked the edges of the tag with some more distress ink.
Here is my doll, I used two different papers for her.  One was
Echo Parks "Chillingsworth Manor" and the other was Authenique
"Enchanted"  Once again I added distress ink and lots of Stickles in
Black Diamond and Orange Peel.  I also added some black tulle to
the bottom of her dress. 
 These sentiment stickers were from the same paper packs and more distress ink. 
I also added a prima flower which I spritzed with Dazzling Diamonds
Glimmer  Mist and Black Diamond Stickles.  To finish off my tag, I
added some Webster's Pages lace and black ribbon, a homemade stick
pin and Recollections Bling.  I added more black tulle and crinkle
ribbon to the top of the tag.
 
Come join us and Craft It Up & Link It Up!!!
