A Christmas Tag at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Today is the start of our new challenge fortnight over at
and our theme for the next 2 weeks is
"Christmas Tag"
I have cut my tag using Tims Alterations Tag die, I used some card I had embossed but ended covering most of that up. Some Christmas carol sheet music and washi tape have also been added to the tag along with frayed burlap distress ink,I have also cut Tim's Elegant flurishes from black linen card and coloured with gold guilding wax. Gold and black lace trim both top and bottom of the tag finished with a gold mesh ribbin bow (I hate making bows) and some wooden stars coloured gold.
Finally my stamped main image, which is one of my favourite Christmas stamps and is from Paperartsy Lynne Perrella Collection LPC018.
The image has been stamped with black versafine ink and I have added touches of gold glitter using a quickie glue pen to add some fine detail.
I have finally added my sentiment using tim Holtz "Chit Chat" stickers.
For more inspiration for this fortnights challenge the rest of the DT have made some wonderful and varied tags so pop over HERE to check their fabulous work out.
We'd love you to come and play along with us and show us your christmas tag. Remember though we are a stamping challenge so rubber stamping must be your main focal point.
One lucky winner will win a $20 voucher to spend online at Flonzcraft our generous sponsor.
Thanks for visiting and see you soon
