My first tag and charm combo

I just started getting into making the dangle charms. They have become somewhat of an addiction for me. I love making them. I have never made the tag/card that a lot of other crafters make to go along with the charm. This is my first attempt at the tag process and I have to say that I like the way it turned out.

I started with a plain large tag in an off white color.

I then inked the tag with 3 different Tim Holtz distress inks. After I had inked to my liking I stamped with some flourishes, a fairy and the word Magic...all of these stamps were Michael's brand recollection stamps from different sets.

I then sprayed the tag with glimmer mist. as you can see it made the stamp images "run" a little. So maybe next time I will spray with the glimmer mist before I stamp with an image. I must admit though, I like the "run" effect that it made on this tag. 

I added my charm to the tag with some strands of ribbon and you have the finished product! I hope you enjoyed looking at my project today. I hope to be back real soon with some more projects to share with you.
