12 tags of Christmas 7

Here’s my seventh 12 tags of Christmas.

I used the same Distress Stains as Tim to make the background (Antique Linen and Pumice Stone) and then stamped the background in a patchy way with Pumice Stone. Kraft glassine was coloured with alcohol inks (gold, Pesto, Lettuce, Bottle). I don’t have the holly die, so instead I used the Tattered Leaves die, after crumbling and inking the glassine. The Branch Tree was die cut from grungeboard for the branches, painted gold, sanded, inked and then painted with a bit of white. Finally, the lace was dyed with Forest Moss.

Quick tag cards

After finishing the tag, I needed four very quick cards, so I made another four tags with the same distress stain background (colouring both sides of the tag), and just did some simple stamping on top. I folded the tags, placed the sentiment on the inside, and the cards were finished. Here they are (sorry that some of the photos aren't great, I had to take them very quickly in poor morning light):

Thank you for stopping by!!
