Penny Black stamp Gift Tag

Hello, Sorry I have been a bad blogger of late and not posted anything for little while. But you know how it is life gets in the way of what you would rather be doing at times.
Today post is only a little project but may help to get your creative side flowing. and this little idea is a lovely way to give a gift or take along to  BBQ as a hostesses gift  (lol I know been a bit silly. weathers not ready yet for BBQ'S).
Take one of theses
a nice bottle of fizz
Take some transparent cellophane wrap this one had some flourishes printed on to it.
You can get this cello wrap at a florists or some greeting card shops sell it. Or try EBay
so what I did was take about 1 meter length gather it up around the bottle neck and secured with a ribbon tied in a bow.
I then made this gift tag to go on to the bottle.
I used a Penny Black stamp . I had this years but have not used them for a while. ( Note to myself look through and use some of my older stamps more often)
The image was stamped and coloured with copic markers and polychrome pencils. and didn't have a gold pen to do the edge of the bath ... but did have a gold stamping ink so I used a paint brush and smudged it where I wanted it. I used Xcut die for the frame and magnolia die for the pink vine type flourish.  The bubbles in cats bath tub were done using pearl decor pen to make them 3d. I let them dry and added more pearl bubble blobs to give more dimension.
To the top of the bottle where cello is gathered. I added some pearl sprays and attached some die cut butterflies. This is a memory box die.
Here is the finished item.
What i have done before is add wrapped chocolate's  loosely scatted inside the cello wrap then tied securely at the neck ( mmmmm Lindor Chocs my fave )
As you can see i also added a few bows there at the neck of the bottle.
I am sure who ever you give it to will be delighted with the effort you have gone too not only with there bottle of bubbly but how lovely it was gift wrapped.

I hope to get my self sorted and get back in to my  crafty room.
I did make a card to go on to my blog but....
it was not coming together right so that when in to bin..  opps.
