Hi everyone! I've been working on this Christmas tag for a couple of days and finally got it finished to post. I'm still not 100% satisfied with it, but it is what it is.
I saw that there is a mixed media tag challenge being held over at Stamping with Loll and this is what I came up with.
I started off with a chip board tag. Painted it a cream color then added some rock candy distress crackle paint. Once dry, I added some distress spray stain colors and using a paper towel rubbed it into the little cracks. Then added more distress colors around the edges to give it an old country look.
Memory box has this really nice fir tree branch die that includes two sizes that I used in the top left corner. The pine cone is made out of a rolled flower die. I just cut the size down a bit. (this is the part of the tag that I'm not too happy with) Christmas lights were purchased at Hobby Lobby and glued on after adding a bit of wire.
The Joy is a die from Savvy stamps. I cut it out of white cardstock and then sprayed it with antiqued brass spray distress stain. Layered it with a cut out of dark brown so that it would stand out a bit more. Lastly, added the plaid tie and finished it off with a bow using some baker twine.
Thanks for stopping by!
