Born Super Stars

Thank you for stopping by on this wonderful October Friday! Today I am sharing a birthday tag for a nine year-old boy, who really is a super star in many ways.
The tag background was inked using Distress inks in brown and blue and a little subtle mesh stamping from Whimsical Melange (it is there), then I ran Faded Jeans Distress ink across the craft sheet and mixed in a little modeling paste and applied this through the star stencil. After it dried, I pounced on lightly a little more FJ.
Before I did any inking on the tag, I stamped Huck Finn and Dog in black Archival and then heat set. I watered colored the images and then cut a mask to keep the image clean from inking the background.
This sentiment from Chalkboard Wisdom was perfect for a birthday!
Finishing it off with another sentiment from Quote and Quotables as there will be plenty of friends to celebrate.

Have a wonderful weekend. Don't forget to get your AO stamps all nice and inky and join in October's Show us you AO Art challenge. You could win a store gift certificate!
