Vintage Birthday Tag

I haven't joined in with the fortnightly challenge over on Tag Tuesday and it's my husband's birthday tomorrow.  I decided to combine the current Shabby Chic or Vintage theme with a gift tag for his birthday present.
Add a piece of copy paper to a #8 manilla tag (stamped with the large Clarity Mixed Impressions Dots and Spots Grunge stamp in Wild Bilberry Artistry ink).  Trim the excess.
Blend Vintage Photo distress ink over the top with a foam tool.
Add the stamp that comes with Douglas across the card in Sepia ink.
Stamp Douglas onto stencil card in Sepia ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
Colour him using a water brush, Wild Bilberry Artistry ink, Vintage Photo Distress ink and Kuretake brush pens.
Colour some of the background stamping with a Vintage Photo Distress marker.  Fussy cut Douglas and add him to the tag.
Seal the whole thing with gel medium and dry thoroughly with a heat gun.
Add further highlights with Faber Castell big brush markers blended out with a Pergamano blending pen and nib.
To finish, add Happy birthday from the Art Nouveau sentiments stamp set in Acorn Archival ink.
