Distressed Christmas Tags


Here we go again another great challenge from the lovely Linda at Studio L3, I love Mondays and I got to play early this week. This weeks challenge is  Perfect Distress.  Now you all know by now we can't talk about the technique but I will say Linda gave a warning on how addictive this is and I will agree lol; as I have made 5 tags  only 3 I'm happy with  which are here  to share the other 2 I'm not pleased with as I was a bit heavy handed in step 3 and step 5 but will keep and make a note on the back where I went wrong and put in my book which I'm making for these challenges. 


Trees- stamped in Pine needles
background shabby shutters

Music- background tea dye stamped
 in vintage photo Merry Christmas
Pine needles























Snowman - stamped in Chipped Sapphire


 On the trees tag I stamped Merry Christmas in pine needles and then in black versafine ink moving stamp just enough to leave a shadow, snowman tag background was tea dye, will all the backgrounds I covered tag and misted and flicked water.  My favourite is the vintage music tag think I had got the hang of the technique by this time lol; nice to make different tags for Christmas thanks Linda for challenging me I don't want this challenge to end.

  2. Thanks for commenting on my tags, Maggie! I do understand about the ones that don't turn out as planned. ;-) These three are great, though. Don't you think they would make good Christmas cards?

  5. This is a fun one! My problem was not enough misting (I was afraid! LOL) I kept having to go back in. And I agree, the music one is definately my favorite.

  8. Hi Maggie, yes my handsome kitty is a seal point tabby Ragdoll. I also am a fully trained servant for his sister Tilly, a chocolate seal point, but she never sits still long enough for a photo!!

  9. Maggie, these are absolutely dreamy! I love the effect you got with this technique and the holiday imagery-- so magical and pretty! I love them all, but keep going back to the snowman-- it looks like he's walking (do snowmen walk?) toward us through a foggy snowstorm. SO beautiful! Girlfriend, you ROCKED this challenge-- these tags are amazing!
