Glitter & Sparkle - Tag Me

Sooo, it's Sunday, which means that it is time for another challenge over at Glitter & Sparkle, and this week our challenge theme is Tag Me!  Basically, make a tag or add one to your project.

I used an image from one of our sponsors, Floppy Latte, to make my tag:

This is the first time I have ever made a tag, but the image when I printed it was the perfect size for some Kraft tags I got free with the latest issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft.

I printed my image on white card and cut around, sticking to the tag shape as much as possible, but also making sure I didn't cut any of the image off.

I then coloured my image using Promarkers.

I then went over the body of the bird with a gold glittery gel pen, and did the same with some of the detail on the bauble.  It doesn't show up brilliantly on the photo, but it really does sparkle.  I also went over some of the ribbon with a blue glittery gel pen, to indicate which would be the 'front' bits of the ribbon and which the 'back' to give some dimension.

I then attached the image to the tag and threaded some navy blue narrow ribbon through the hole in the tag.  

To finish, I added a gold jingle bell and twisted some red wire around a pen to make it 'curly' and added this too.

I would like to enter this tag into the following challenges:

Sweet Stampin' - Use Tags
The Sugar Bowl - Sparkle & Shine
My Time To Craft - Baubles
