Quick Quotes Tag it April Challenge with gnomes

Good morning!  Alicia here today playing with this month's challenge again: Tag It!  I am absolutely in love with the gnome tags I made.  It took me several tries to achieve my desired look, but I finally got the results I wanted. 

I will describe the process:
  • Stamp and emboss the image on a white tag
  • Stamp a duplicate image (not embossed) on masking paper
  • Ink the images with Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking inks and a water pen
  • Cut the masking image as precise as possible and attached over the colored image
  • Stamp the plaid stamp with Versamark ink and emboss with white powder
  • Ink the background with the desired color of Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking inks
  • Remove the masking image
  • For the watering can stamp on white paper, ink, cut and attach with a pop dot
  • Add a ribbon
