Star Tree Tag

One more tag to post!  I started this tag a couple weeks ago when a friend came over to stamp, but I fussed with it several times for a week until I was happy with it.  It uses an old Stampin' Up set called Peace on Earth.  I used the globe ornament image from this set for a tag two years ago.  Check it out here.  For this tag, I used the star tree image.

I cut a tag from white cardstock using the Tag Sale: Quilted die by Papertrey Ink.  I stamped the tree in Tuxedo Black ink and colored the stars with a Handsome Hunter marker.  Then I used a glue pen to add Black Licorice glitter to the star tree.  It is so pretty in real life!  The flecks of black and green really give depth to the color.

I stamped a sentiment from Peace on Earth by Verve Stamps next to the tree.  I really love the design of the stamps in this set.  I colored the "night" banner section with Copic markers.  Both of the stars (in the sentiment and on the tree) were colored with a Daffodil Delight marker and then embellished with Lemon Drop glitter.

I cut a piece of Enchanted Evening cardstock with a die from Tag Sale #10 by Papertrey Ink.  Using Harvest Gold cardstock, I cut a star with a die from Blueprints 8 by My Favorite Things and glittered it with Lemon Drop as well.  The finished tag is so pretty with all the sparkle!  A bit of dark blue ribbon and it's ready to use.
