The fairy was first stamped on the mulberry paper and then restamped onto cardstock, colored and fussy cut, then glued over the stamped image. 

I adhered the mulberry paper to the front of the tag and then wet the edges and pulled it off to give it a soft feathery look. Ran the tag through the printer for the fun birthday sentiment. Hand stitched around the edge.

I create the "to and from" part of my tags on the back so I can decorate the front as much as I want :) By addind the back layer it also hides my sewing.

mulberry paper - misc.
Prima - stamp ( Fairy stamp, had for a very long time and first time I have used it! )
Ranger - stickles
Mark Richards - metal stickers ( on the crown )
bling - misc.
Isabella - font ( love the storybook look to this font )
Helmar - V2 Spray ( to adhere the mulberry paper )
Faber castell - PITT pens
And an extra card today, one that I made for my hair stylist whose birthday is Saturday. I love that when I made my appointment for Friday that she made sure to let me know that her birthday is on Saturday....think she wants a card? lol

It's hand drawn, and colored in with Distress Stains and water color pencils. Matted on paper from the scrap bin.

Faber Castell - Aqarelle pencils, PITT pens
Ranger - Distress stains
