I used PTI's Basic Bookmark #2 die as my starting point for my tag and came up with this:
I used SU!'s Sheet Music background stamp with kraft ink to stamp my tag, and then stamped over that with another SU! favorite of mine called Ornamental Pine. I did put the pine branch in my MISTI and then inked it up using markers and then spritzing with water before stamping on the tag, to give the water colored look. Next I stamped 3 snowflakes from Penny Black's Winter Joy stamp set in Cocoa Bean ink and then used a liberal dose of WOS on them.
Next I added a pair of birds from my beloved PTI Brushed Birds stamp set using Pure Poppy, Scarlet Jewel, & Cocoa Bean inks. The smallest bird is pop dotted for some dimension. I finished with a die cut sentiment from Penny Black called Rejoice, some Rainstones (PTI), and a little bit of sponging around the edges using Vintage Photo DI. Oh, and tied the top with some brown & white gingham ribbon and a piece of rustic twine.
