Visible Image Stamps "Born to perform" gift tag

Here's a tag I made last night, but got engrossed in the final of "The Great British Sewing Bee" on TV so forgot to upload it.  Did you watch the programme? I felt Asmaa was consistant with all her makes and that final dress was amazing.  I still have no idea how she made it.  A worthy winner as far as I am concerned!

Anyway, back to the tag.  I started by using three shades of Ranger "Archival Inks" to create the background colour, starting with the lightest "Pink Peony" blending in to "Vibrant Fuchsia" and then "Cactus Flower" at the base of the tag.

I lay the Visible Image "Breakout" stencil across the top corner of the tag and applied more of the "Cactus Flower" ink through the stencil.

I then moved the stencil to the lower right hand side and repeated the process.

Moving on to the stamping, I used Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink with the Visible Image "Born to perform" stamp set.  Stamping the figure first, then the word "Dance" at the base of the tag and then "Born to" at the top left.

I then used Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink to stamp two sizes of stars, which are also part of the Visible Image "Born to perform" stamp set.  I added a bit of sparkle to the middle of the stars using "A Wink of Stella" pen.

Finally, using a black pastel pencil, I grounded the dancer.  I added a few touches of white gel pen to areas of the dancer to make her pop a little too.
