Today I have used the "Total Drama" Retro Girl Drama Queen Postcard digital stamp from KennyK Stamps, one of our generous sponsors this week.

We have several milestone birthdays coming up this year and I thought this image would make some fun bottle tags.

I coloured the images with Copic markers (details below).
I masked the images and borders (with X-Press It Mask It) then coloured the backgrounds with Distress Inks (details below).  The inks are so vibrant

I cut the bottle tag base using my Silhouette Cameo.  I used part of a purchased file and welded it to a rectangle to suit the image dimensions.

... I have to confess that I used a delicious bottle of red wine vinegar for the photo shoot.
