Stippled or Sponged with SS

Hello crafty friends!

This week's Sweet Stamps Challenge is a:

Stippled or Sponged

For this challenge I decided to create a simple tag!

I started by gathering all my supplies I wanted to use:
I then used the brush to add ink to the tag by stippling.  


After I had the tag inked up I used the brush to add Creative Inspirations Paint to the tag as well!!  To give it a beautiful shimmer!


I used Green Olive and Rustic Red!


Here's a look at the completed tag:

For the star on the top of the tree I used CI Paint Sunshine!
I added a bunch of red rhinestones to the tree as well as using my Quickie Glue Pen to add Fairy Dust Glitter to add sparkle, as if it were garland!
