A Prize and A Tag

In December Ranger Ink shared 12 Days of Ornaments on their blog and they gave away prizes just for commenting.  This picture, taken from their blog, shows what the prize consisted of and I was thrilled when I was one of the final prize winners!!!  Woo-Hoo!!!! Sooo......


...as I was creating using my new Antiquated Collection stamps plus I had this wonderful prize sitting here I decided I should use some of it also.  I realized that this lady from the Society Lady set would look perfect in the Memory Frame.  I stamped her onto natural sticky back canvas using jet black Archival Ink, colored her using Cut n' Dry Nibs and Distress Ink, added white to the pearls with the Inkssential pen, added ruby slippers Glitz Stickles onto the 'berry' (or whatever they are) areas of the hat and rubbed some crystal ice Ice Stickles around the edges.  When it was all dry I sandwiched it between 2 pieces of Memory glass and into the frame.  For the background I did Tim's wrinkle free distress technique with festive berries Distress Ink, dried it, stamped the background image (Studio 490 background from the set Sentimental Art) with Archival Ink sepia, added Distress Ink vintage photo around the edges using an ink blending tool.  Added lace, brown mini rickrack, and sticky back pearls (cream over the rickrack and red on the lace) to the bottom part of the tag.  Hung a heart charm from the loop on the Memory Frame and attached the piece to the tag.  Stamped "Society lady" onto a scrap of cardstock, sponged on festive berries ink, and attached it as shown.  Rubbed a bit of the crystal ice Stickles around the edge of the tag and tied lace to the top to finish things off.
