Tag 5 - Twelve Tags of Christmas



Hi and back again with my version of Tag 5 in Tim's twelve tags of Christmas, nice to have finished one on the same day :D. I improvised with a flourish stamp instead of the mirror stamps that TH used and this technique is another that gives such a beautiful look with the acetate against the card and ribbon.

I used red pepper, watermelon and pesto alcohol inks and I like the addition of the pesto which gives a bit of contrast from the red. I made my Christmas wreath using a holly punch and varying tones of green bazzil card, I dyed the ribbon with Iced Spruce and Pine Needles distress ink then added a prima pearl embellishment to the wreath, some stickles glitter glue here and there, gems and pearl pen dots around the tag.

Enjoy your day :)
