Birthday Card

I made a birthday card for my friend's birthday and wanted to share it with all of you. It took me a long time to do some special touches, but she is very special to me, so it was worth it.

 I tea dyed the tag, refer to my post on tea dying to learn how to do this really cool technique.

This tag was 1st stamped with versafine and then Tea dyed, it left an amazing background image.

 This is the Birthday Card. I used a really pretty bronze glitter tape on the tag. I stamped Happy Birthday on the tea dyed tag. The flower on the top right with the white center was hand stained with a bronze metallic paint that I made a wash with. It came out a perfect tan/taupe color.

I antiqued the card by using a sponge dauber and brown distressing ink. The paper on the right is the newspaper I tea dyed and stamped.

 I made a special box card for the chunky card
