Psst... It's a Tag

I used a corner punch on the top of the tag, both layers. The background of this tag is water-colored using an Aqua Painter. I stamped over it and added the greeting psst... Added a ribbon on top and wah-lah, done!

I started making this for a swap of Goddess ATC's. We were to pick a goddess, her initial, and to include sparkle. I have always been curious about Lilith, so I ended up doing a lot of research and wrote a brief little history on the back of the card. Now I'm not sure if I want to trade her away....
I used: Sakura Glaze Pen in Black for her hair
            Stickles in X-Mas Red for the comb in her hair
            Liquid Pearls in Cantaloupe on her scarf
            Stampin' Up Owl stamp
            Inkssentials Opaque Pen in White, which doesn't work well for me, on her initial
