Hello friends. Been waiting a whole year to play along again with Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas event...not only do I love looking at all the beautiful and artsy tags by Loll and everyone who plays along, but I LOVE making them too!
I started by blending some Broken China and Cracked Pistachio DOX inks and then used the ghosting technique with a birch tree stencil. Once dry, I used a PTI Bookmark die to cut out my tag and then started decorating it. The tree's are Tim Holtz dies and I lightly embossed some of the edges with copper and also added a little glitter. The deer die cuts are from a Gina Marie Design and one was cut from corrugated cardboard (LOVE the dimension it gives!) and the other from kraft cs...they were both sponged with a little bit of Walnut Stain distress ink. The copper embossed "joy" is from PTI's Wet Paint Holiday dies. A few rainstones (PTI) and some seam binding ribbon and copper cording finished off my tag.
Make sure you stop by and check out Loll's BEAUTIFUL tag (and her guest Susan Bridgman's lovely tag too!), and then play along right HERE. There will be 12 days of gorgeous inspiration, so if you love making tags, make sure to visit...you won't be disappointed!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
