You can see Linda's tag here. You'll see that my inspiration was the framed Santa. I just loved that and I have just gotten TH ornate frame die. I really wanted to use it and some of the new Antique Linen Distress Glitter and this tag was the perfect opportunity. I used Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint for the background and then stamped some holly with Mowed Lawn. I cut the frame out of card stock and inked it with the Antique Linen DI. Then used Glossy Accents and applied the glitter. I love this glitter. It looks very vintage. I then used the center oval of the frame as a template for the watercolor of Santa. I cut it out of watercolor paper and stamped the Santa image. It's a Tim Holtz stamp but I don't remember which one. I then used a water pen and ink pads to watercolor the image. I love that technique. I glued the oval down and the frame around it.
Using water color paper again, I stamped the Happy Holidays greeting using Vermillion Archival Ink. I had the vintage looking candy canes in my stash and I attached those with Glossy Accents and made a ribbon bow to glue in the middle.
I really like this tag. It's very cheery and I love the red and green with the Santa watercolor. Here are some close ups.
There you have it! I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks again for stopping by.
