The Out of a Hat Creations challenge #39/40 is for 'Birthstone Colours'. Now I am a July baby so immediately wanted to use Ruby.

I inked my Tim Holtz tag die with Tim Holtz barn door and festive berries distress inks before spritzing with water and Dylusions postbox red ink spray and heated with my heat tool. I added black lines around the edge and then ran the tag through my big shot inside the Cuttlebug swizz dots embossing folder. I attached a red ribbon bow to the bottom and top of the tag and 3 red gems stones down the side. I stamped my new Gorjuss rose stamp (won on the 'Dies to Die for' facebook page), and coloured with the distress inks and water brush. I added Ranger glossy accents on top of each rose on her dress and attached her to the tag with double sided foam. I printed an appropriate verse from a birthstone poem, inked and covered with Tim Holtz rock candy crackle paint. I attached a heart pin behind and added the July month from the Tim Holtz tissue tape again with inked edges below.
Thanks for looking!
