The East Wind Challenge - Use a sentiment

 You'll have to excuse my photos.  What with the glare of the mirri card and the glass bottle it was a nightmare to get a decent photo.

Over at the East Wind Challenge the topic this time is "use a sentiment".  For my bottle tag I have used The East Wind image called "Ashley Signature Pose".  This image of Ashley is one of a number that Unky has designed and is giving 50% of all the sales of Ashley images to her friend Ashley who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  Pop on over to Unky's Etsy Store called "The East Wind" to see these images and many many more.
I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens and highlighted areas with my white Pgrah'it pen, added some sparkle chalk around the image and then distressed it with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and inked with a chalk ink pad.  
I have used Craft Artist to print the bottle tag template onto the card.  The papers I have used are from Bearly Mine Designs Mixed Media 2.  I have layered the image onto some mirri card, one of which I have embossed with a dotty embossing folder and the other a Tim Holtz brick pattern (as there is a brick effect on the Mixed Media 2 paper I have used).  I have also used a piece of purple Bearly Mine Designs Paper Lace papers.

I have finished the bottle tag off with a ribbon bow, button, decorative wire flower, punched flowers with gem brad centres, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and dew drops.

I am entering this bottle tag into the following challenges:

Lacy Sunshine - Add flowers
