Compendium Challenge #21

Howdy all !    Hope everyone is having a great week .. it's almost over .. Friday is right around the corner...  YAY !!!    This weeks compendium challenge is #55 .. Rock Candy Distress Glitter.

I decided to do a tag .. I grabbed a #8 Kraft tag.   I decided with Valentines Day coming I would do another project to kill two birds with one stone.   This will also be my card for my hubs :)  I recently won a give away from Tim Holtz and I won the Bird Crazy set.   I love this set, the birds are so cute and crazy.

So I did the technique .. this was the first time I used Rangers sticky embossing powder .. this stuff ROCKS !  I'm going to use this a lot more now that I know how to use it.    So here is the technique, kinda hard to see the glitter.

So I cut me out two of the birds that would be facing each other.   I just got my Cracked Pistachio distress set so I HAD to use it.   I decided to rub on some cracked pistachio distress paint. Once I did that I used my marker and went over the lines again to make it pop.
I used the wording from Tim's Words For Thought set stamped on kraft paper.   I used Festive Berries distress ink to ink the edges.  I used a stamp from Wendy Vecchi (also a Wendy stamp on the background) I stamped it in festive berries distress 5 times.   Used one full one for the top of the tag and cut four hearts out from it.  I used glossy accents to make the hearts shine and put them on wire
So here's the finished tag .. I think it turned out so freakin cute !!!!!
And more pics
