Happy Christmas

This week I created a Christmas tag using the stamps from Snowy Woods. I cannot let Christmas pass without using the stamps from this collection several times. I've always been a lover of vintage Santas. Santa was stamped in India Ink on watercolor paper and colored with markers. I cut out the face using a circle die and used him as the focal point of my rosette. The sentiment, also from Snowy Woods was stamped on a die cut tattered banner which was colored with old paper distress ink and edged with vintage photo. The background snowflakes, also Snowy Woods, were stamped with broken China distress ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The tag was then covered with iced spruce distress ink and embossed again with clear embossing powder. The greenery was die cut using Core'dinations paper. The bling in the corner was a gift to me. All of the techniques used were based on Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas 2011.
Sending warm wishes to everyone for a wonderful and Happy Christmas.
