Christmas Tag Event


Today, I have the pleasure of being a part of Loll Thompson's 

So far, the tags have just been amazing and so wonderfully done.
The challenge is to make a Mixed Media tag; any size or style.


http://www.stampingwithloll.com/


For my tag, I began with a piece of paper I made using the
Shaving Cream Stenciling Technique.
I cut out my tag using a tag die from MFT, then cut a circle from the center using dies from Spellbinder as a place to add my snowflake as a focal point.
The 'be jolly' is from Stamplorations.





I hope you get a chance to check out all the inspiration and make some tags to have on hand for the holidays.


Adding my tag to these challenges:

Addicted to CAS- OMBRE

Tag You're It!- TAG

Craft Your Passion- ANYTHING GOES

Crafting When We Can- CIRCLES


Thanks so much for the visit!


Supplies:  stencil-SSS/ dies-MFT, Spellbinders, Stamplorations/ Shaving Cream/ blue gem/ Distress Re-inkers

Wonderful blend of colours in the stencilling! They go so well with the silver ornament and the white sentiment.

This is gorgeous, Karen - so much detail on such a small canvas!

The shaving cream background is lovely & such soft marbling. It's such a pretty backdrop for the stitched circle and such dimension with adding the texture of the snowflake over the raised circle. Love the snowflake patterns in the background, and the fabulous blue jewel. Love the bold white sentiment over the interesting border too. TFS
