Good morning. Over Christmas our very good friend who lives in our road kindly came in to look after Billy for us over a couple of days. She has helped us out in this way for some years now and I always like to treat her to a bottle of something. She is also one of the very few people that Billy will go to. He is very wary of people other than his family and I love that he will come to greet her rather than hide upstairs on our bed.
For those of you who have not met my Billy before, here he is. My sweetest, pink nosed, handsome boy.
I thought that a bottle of bubbly was very appropriate to give her for that time of the year.
In the past I used to make a tag to tie on the bottle but I had a light bulb moment that if I die cut out the top I could put the tag over the neck of the bottle and make a specific bottle tag. I also decided that this would be a good Design Team project to share for my weekly Visible Image post.
These are the products I worked with.

I then used the stars from the stars and stripes stencil.
Then it was time to put my design together. You can see that I added some more distress oxide ink to my tag. I embossed the paws using sparkling black embossing powder. I also added some highlights using white gel pen and some sparkly sequins.
Here is a close up of the focal. You can really see the sparkle in the black powder.
I would like to enter my bottle tag into the following challenges.
