There's a Christmas tag swap going on in a group I'm in on Facebook, and I decided to get mine done while taking a break from Dt work...
The other day, I got pointed in the direction of Loll (thanks Darnell!) who is hosting a Christmas tag challenge on her blog this month. These's been gorgeous inspiration to be found there every day for a week, and more still to come, so I suggest you go check it out!
Anyways, on to my tag...
I'm very much in love with the emboss resist technique at the moment, so it features on my tag, using a LOTV background stamp.
After embossing, I inked the background with distress inks in lovely shades of green and red (with a hint of pumice stone too, and some scattered straw for warmth...).
The Santa is a QKR digi, which I coloured with Promarkers, and the tree border is from Crafts Too. I'd inked a piece of cardstock with two shades of green before cutting, and inked the edges with vintage photo after, then added a snowy look with a light dusting of Snowtex.
I added some Hessian ribbon, a little handmade parcel and some holly - with glossy accents on the berries - and finished off with a couple of jingle bells tied up with string and a little piece of tartan ribbon.
Oh, and a Tim Holtz Chitchat sticker in the bottom corner!
So there it is. my first Christmas tag this year, but probably not my last!
Hope you've all had a great weekend. I'll be back to doing the rounds again tomorrow morning!
