INCB - Just Inklined & All Dressed Up

Hello everyone!
Back this week to share another tag I created for the
where its always
Anything Goes!
First up is 
I'm using their
I used a Vertigo sheet by Imagine Crafts.  I cut it into a #8 tag.  Used some clear Rain Dots that I colored red using my Copic Pen and glued them down with tiny Glue Dots.  I colored the image with Copic Pens.  I also glued down a mini red umbrella by Sparrow Innovations.  I wrote out each word in the sentiment and glued them down also.


Our next sponsor is
All Dressed Up 
and I'm using their 
image.  It really is a cool image...  I began inking up the tag with Tim Holtz' Distress Inks, Barn Door, Crushed Olive, Festive Berries, Peacock, Salty Ocean, Spiced Marmalade, Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick.  I flicked some drops onto the tag and dried it with a heal tool.
I then used a 5x8 Dylusion  stencil (Checkered Dots DY8308216)
I used my Copic Pens to color the image and then I used Glossy Accent on parts of her body.  I cut out a sentiment which I believe is also by a Dylusions stamp, popped it and call it done.
Thanks again to our wonderful sponsors
If you have a minute or two, swing by the
