Whiff of Joy - Tag, you're it

Happy Tuesday and thanks for stopping by! Today is my turn to share something on the Whiff of Joy blog, and since it's a Tuesday it's "Tag you're it" day.
For "Tag you're it" day the Design Team member is to look around the web for a tag creation using whiff of joy products and then ask the designer's permission to use their creation for inspiration on the Whiff of Joy blog.

Below is my tag using a stamp from the Spring Secret Stamp kit, that is sadly no longer available now. But you can now pre-order the Summer stamp kit, which I am sure it just as adorable, although I haven't seen it yet. 

I colored the image using copic markers. The blue paper in the back is actually a basket style coffee filter, that I inked up using dye inks. You can read about the technique that I used HERE. Fun and very messy :-) After the ink dried on the filter, I stamped the music note onto the paper using gesso.
The circles were cut using a die from Whimsy stamps, as you can see I only used parts of the die on the right side and the top left. This time I stamped the music note image onto the white paper using very light turquoise ink. And sponged it a little bit using turquoise ink.

The sentiment was also cut into a tag, and tied onto my sparkly tinsel ribbon with some twine. Both the music note and sentiment are part of the spring stamp kit. I added some lace, glitter and a few rhinestones for some sparkle.

Of course I wanted to show you the gorgeous tag that inspired my creation. It was made by the amazingly talented Alice. I am sure many of you are familiar with her work, if not be sure to visit
 her blog. She created the tag below a few years ago. I simply fell in love with the sketch and of course her coloring is simply stunning.

I would love to play along in a few challenges as well:
