Tag-a-long Day 4 and MFT Teaser!

DAY 4 of the Holiday Tag-a-long and it is time to get inky!
This tag is ONE layer although it has great depth to it when you look at it. It is adorned with another set that is due for release on Dec 1st. called "Inspired by Love" in the Inspired By line at MFT!
Here is a close up of the little heart this bird is toting. It was cut out by the new heart trio die from the Die-namics line at MFT. The pattern on the heart is also one of the stamps in this set.
Had to take a close photo of this lovely verse as well. Here we go with some more step by step photos!
First I covered my #8 tag with sand colored Glimmer Mist and then dried it with my heat tool.
I then stamped my "Cherish" sentiment with versamark ink and embossed it in clear powder.
I laid this tattered angel stencil over my tag and sprayed with green and red glimmer mist.
Sponged the edges with vintage photo distress ink.
I outlined my bird image with a chocolate spica glitter pen. It adds more sparkle and definition to the bird
I stamped the verse at the bottom and added some trim.

To get the "CHERISH" word to really pop I removed the embossing powder by pressing it out with my iron and a paper bag.

Here are a few details you should know about this month's release:
Teasers begin November 27th and will happen every day until and including release day. You can find the list of designers for teasers each day at 11am EST on the MFT Blog.
The release party will be happening on the MFT Forums on December 1st beginning at 8pm EST (that is 5pm for us here in the pacific time zone).
Don't forget to check out our guest designer contest this month. You can find all that info in the forums HERE.
The big "Hop and Shop" day will be release day (December 1st) where you will be able to hop and see all the goodies on the designer's blogs and then do a "shop" the festivities will begin on the MFT blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
