A Carousel Birthday Card

  I had been eyeing this carousel horse stamp at Michael's, but I'm glad I restrained myself, because I picked this stamp up at a yard sale last month for $3!
  I stamped it on a Prima watercolour tag, then using Distress Inks pads, smushed them on an acrylic block, and with a water brush, randomly added colours to the stamped image. 
  I then flicked some water on top and dried with my heat tool. Ripped the top and bottom, inked with DI Gathered Twigs and attached to a patterned Prima tag; cut bottom of tag off to fit kraft card.
  Along the side I used my Swiss Cheese edge punch and inked around holes with DI. 
  The sentiment is from CTMH stamp set call Something Splendid, which I also picked up from a yard sale last spring. Punched the tag hole through the card, and added seam binding.

  Used another Prima tag for the inside, and same technique on watercolour paper for the sentiment. This stamp is from the Whimsy Stamps set, Birthday Greetings.
  I used the top of the tag that I cut off for the inside and attached here for my stamp and date. The Prima tags; watercolour pad and patterned tags pad, I bought at my local crafty store, The Cutting Garden.

  I made this tag for Mike's aunt Janette, who is celebrating her birthday today! Happy Birthday Janette!

  Gorgeous weather we are having; 20C for Pete's sake! Although, we may get a piece of that hurricane on the weekend; not too bad though.

  Hope all my Canadian friends and family had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend! Love turkey! 

  Thanks for stopping by and leaving a word or two! Muchly appreciated.

i made it myself!
