I started with a size 10 tag and used Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo DI to ink the background. The border is another Graphic45 stamp, from their Travelogue set I believe. I stamped that with Sepia archival ink. I used Tea Dye ink for the gentleman and the poinsettias from the TH stamps. Then I took the elegantly dressed lady from the Graphic45 Couture set and stamped her with Sepia archival ink on watercolor paper and used Distress Markers to color her in. She's wearing a lovely green dress done in Mowed Lawn. It has dark red rhinestones embellishing it. Her shoes and her feathered fan are done in Festive Berries and in her hair she has a circle of red rhinestones! The beads wrapped around her one arm are red and the bracelets on her other arm are done in gold. A golden tassel hangs from her fan. I think she's found some quiet time before the festivities begin, don't you? The Christmas greeting is from the TH set and is stamped on manila CS with the same inks as the background with Sepia used for the stamping. A few tea colored rhinestones give the poinsettias some dimension. Here are some details.
This tag is not as embellished as some but I love it. And, I realized when I finished it that I had used the poinsettia stamp and another of the greeting stamps from the TH set for my first tag of the challenge! That probably says something but I don't have time to figure out what!!
I hope you'll visit Linda's shop, The Funkie Junkie Boutique, which is sponsoring the challenge. She has a great selection of merchandise at great prices.
Thank you so much for taking time to visit me. I also want to thank you for all the support and wonderful comments you've given me this year. I really appreciate them so much. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
