IBFS tag

Hello! It's Wednesday and time for another I Brake for Stamps challenge. The challenge for the next two weeks is to make a project with a background stamp. You can read the details over on the I Brake for Challenges Blog. I'm not sure my tag counts as using a background stamp, but it's what I was inspired to make! (It's early here in NY-the challenge will be up in a bit) this is the IBFS Snowflake collage. There are many new stamps in the store and Della also sells Wild Orchid flowers! Use my code SAVE10CHERYL for 10% off your order!
I stamped the image in Memento tuxedo blac and colored the blue sections with BG10 and then darkened some areas with BG72 and a touch of BG75. Then I used E42 and a blender to darken the tan areas that I wanted. I used BG78 around the edge of the tag and some E37 around the stamped image.
Of course I wanted soime sparkle so I added distress stickles (sugar candy) with my finger and dried it with my heat gun. Then I added stardust stickles to other areas for a different sparkle.
A ribbon in the top and my tag was done!
(The "for You" sentiment is a stamp from an old SU set) You could also handwrite the recipients name in the box.
I love that you visited today! Please consider joining our background stamp challenge. You don't have to use an IBFS image, but if you do that'd be great!
Enjoy your day!
Hope mine is better than yesterday!
