A Groovy Birthday

Next week, my favorite Aunt Groovy is having a birthday. Yesterday I got my new Summer Limited Edition t!m Holtz Distress inks. Ohhh so pretty! So I had to play with them this morning and make Groovy a cool birthday tag. I smushed all three colors on my kraft mat and spritzed both the inks and my tag with water and ran the tag (and two others!) thru the inky puddle. Then I dried it and re-inked thru the puddle for more depth. I distressed the edges and used my Vintage Photo ink pad and inked the edges. I used Eyelash Lady for my main image and used my red and brown Dylusions inks and hand painted her eyebrows and mouth. I used Fruit Punch Stickles on the tips of her eyelashes. I used the leaf stamp from Around The Edge stamp set at the top and highlighted usign my Signo Uniball white pen and I sprayed water thru a stencil on the bottom.

What a fabulous name for an aunt!!! I'd want to go visit her a lot! She sounds so fun, just based on the name, and the fact that you made her the grooviest tag ever!!! Love the vibrant color and the eyelashes rock!
