Scrapyland Happy Birthday!

Hi, I'm back today with a tag for Scrapyland's Vintage/Steampunk Challenge.  This is a fun challenge, get out those supplies and come play along!  

I also want to wish my wonderful friend Darlene a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  I hope it's a wonderful day and I've also joined Darlene's Birthday Blog Hop.  If you want to see all the wonderful projects created for her scroll down to see my earlier post today.

This tag was a lot of fun to create.  I usually think of steampunk cards in brown shades but I noticed a few with pretty blue backgrounds on pinterest and the color inspired this tag.  After coloring the background with distress inks I cut the Memory Box Sketchy Rings.  I embellished it with a frantae embossing powder and a verdigris embossing powder.  I set it aside and used a god embossing paste and a stars stencil to add to the background.  I thought the blue with the darker edges looked like a night sky.  

On the bottom right side I added a chunky silver glitter to the stars - I liked the gold stars I just really wanted to play with a new-for-me product.  I cut the Cheery Lynn Hot Air Balloon, colored it with distress ink and glued rhinestones to it.  I cut the Cheery Lynn Happy and Birthday, colored them yellow with distress ink and glued them on top of the rings.  The last thing I added was the blue cord and three green dew drops.
