Ink blended tags

I have been working away on a huge stash of tags over the past week.  After enjoying all the inspiration on Tracey McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, I got down to business with some simple white tag shapes, using colours of Distress Oxide inks to blend on a small portion of each.  Intending to do four tags originally, I sort of couldn't stop myself, and ended up with 48 tags total!
 Does anyone remember There She Goes stamps?  They closed shop a few years ago, but several years before that I won a set of sweet, tiny images.  I stamped a bunch of them and coloured them with Copic markers a week ago.  And yes, I fussy cut out 76 of these tiny images.
Here were the first four that I loved so much - I made four of each....
Then I did a circle version...
And finally a squarish tag, where I ink blended one of the corners.  I sorted through numerous stamp sets to come up with 12 different sentiments, and adhered some of the images with pop dots.
 Here are the tags from Tracey McNeeley on day 16 that made me want to try a little ink blending with black sentiments:

Wonderful tags! I love the bit of ink distressing on each one.

I hear you: it's hard to stop at just *one* tag (or even four) so making 48 makes complete sense to me...and what a delightful series you've shared with us! I'm in awe of your fussy cutting of 76 images - and how pretty they are, paired with the 'just a bit' of distress inking! Thrilled that you played along with us in the 25 Days event...and even more thrilled that you now have lovely tags to add to presents or to give as gift sets!
