I'm working on Tag 10 today but for now here's tag 7. I'm having so much fun learning all these new techniques. For tag 7, I love the brown tones and weathered look. I love how the brown makes the red and green pop.
I used Sanded Background stamp to weather the tag. It' one of my favorite stamps! The sentiment is all pretty and flourished. I used a few of dangles wrapped on the ribbon including this light bulb stained with red.
I don't have glassine paper to create these holy leaves. But I do have a waxy kraft paper. After some trial and error, sanding the paper allowed the ink to adhere. I cut my own holy an branches since I don't have the die. I used red jingles for berries and layered them over lace.
I also don't have the distress stains for to swirl the tag in. I stamped my Kraft mat with the pumice stone and vintage photo. Then squirted the tag with water and swirled through the ink. Repeat this until you get the desired colour you want.
