It's week #170 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and this week we're to use dies but no punches. We've got two brilliant sponsors and they are VISIBLE IMAGE and MARIANNE DESIGN and both are offering stamps as the prize.  I used the fabulous Edgar clear stamp from Visible Image for my tag, coloured with Promarkers.

I started with a manilla tag and inked the background using distress ink pads, masking off a moon first.  The tree and grass bit are Marianne dies, and the little branch (top left) is a Cheery Lynn die from one of the Build a Flower sets.  I drew in the tiny birds across the moon and the branches up the right hand side and the  bird were stamped with my Kaisercraft 13th Hour set of stamps.
