Millie sparks conversation

Hi Guys, I am posting for Emerald Creek today.  Our theme for the month is Fireworks and Sparks.    Millie here, certainly knows how to make an entrance! 
I loved how the Three Star Metal Band Charm fit on her head and I just kind of ran with it from there.  

I cut out  my stars and embossed them using the new Peppered Chantilly.  
My tag was stamped using the Fallen Blossom stamp and Jet Black Archival Ink.

I used Distress ink in Candied Apple, Fired Brick, and Festive Berries to color the tag.  I spritzed on some water and dried it.  I went back in with the Fired Brick Oxide over the top of the tag and spritzed a bit more.  You can see a few stars peeking through here and there.  I used the Tim Holtz Star stencil and removed the color using a baby wipe.  

I colored some of the blossoms using my Chipped Sapphire Distress Marker and a waterbrush.  The centers were all colored using a white gel pen.  I added some Chipped Sapphire Distress Crayon on the edges.  

You can't see unless you look really closely, but Millie has a long necklace in her hands.  I embossed it using Charred Gold.  I cut a slit above and below her hand so it looks like she is holding the flowers.  The headband has some fun sparkly yarn in the holes.  Obviously, Millie likes a bold and dramatic look.  
Don't forget to pop over and enter the Dare on the Emerald Creek blog.  You have the chance to win $50 to the Emerald Creek store(that's a whole lot of Embossing powder)!
