DAY 5 - 12 TAGS OF CHRISTMAS

I completed tag 5 on day 5 and what a great tag Tim produced today love this technique, now I didn't have the backwards stamps that Tim used so I went with a flourish swirl as there is no right or wrong direction, Alcohol Inks used were red pepper, currant and raisin.  I made the wreath from the pine cone die leaves (yeah it came today)!! a lot different to the original tag but this is the way I tie my greenery on my doors if I don't want a wreath... well I did when I had the conifer tree in my garden alas we have not got one at this house..... so I go begging from friends.......... it works for me!! Or better still collecting during a lovely walk.

 I have also stamped Season Greetings at the bottom of the tag in Archival Ink then I went overboard with the pearls and tied lace at the top of the tag.  I am really pleased with today's tag and it didn't take long to make.

I may be back with tomorrows............. we will see!

  4. A wonderful Christmas tag Maggie and I'm loving the ones in your previous Posts too. The leaves and pearls make a fabulous festive bough.
    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog - Medallion stamps were so popular several years ago, but you rarely see them now.
    Have a happy day - Sylvia x
