Loll's Twelve Tags Of Christmas

Hello friends.  One more tag to share from Loll's Twelve Tags Of Christmas event.  This is a mixed media tag event, and for my tag I used stamping, stenciling, embossing, and die cutting.

I made a stencil by die cutting a Cheery Lynn Holly design, and then stenciled through it onto my tag with Ocean Tides ink.  Next I lightly embossed in gold the music background using a SU! music stamp.  My Poinsettia's were die cut using a Gina Marie Designs die and then sponged, and wrinkled up, and then somewhat flattened out to give a little bit of dimension and a distressed look.  I also added a few drops of gold Nuvo Drops to the centers of each Poinsettia.

My sentiment was die cut and embossed using W Plus 9's Hand Lettered Holiday stamp and die set.  I also quite liberally sprayed Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz all over the tag to make it really sparkle in the light!

Today is the last day of this tag event as far as new tags from Loll and her GD's go, but the linky is open until the 24th if you'd like to play along for the chance at one of the two prizes.  You can check it all out right HERE.

Your background is outstanding! Love the crisp look of the musical score combined with the stenciling. How wonderful your poinsettia looks after crumpling, a technique I've long forgotten. Beautiful tag!
