A tag

Phew, I've finally managed to finish my Christmas cards, all written and posted at last! Presents all wrapped too, so beginning to feel that I'm on top of things. So, today I rewarded myself with a little 'just for me' play! I made this mixed media tag, using all kinds of lovely messy stuff! This is actually 2 kraft tags glued together, the top one has been painted with gesso,  distressed, inked and stencilled with blue distress ink (the stencilling doesn't really show much as I went a bit wild with the frontage!) I also used white sand texture paste through a diamond patterned stencil, then coloured it brown with distress ink. The image is from The East Wind, available here, I've just used a part of it. Flowers from stash, die cuts, lace ribbon and twine....I've thrown the lot on! So much fun ...and NOT a Christmas card!
Thanks for popping in...hope you're all looking forward to the big day!

What a BEut your tag is! Tags are something I tend not to do...It always amazes my how much one person can get on such a small thing! Yours is no exception..Brilliant colours, lots of pretty embellishment and the colouring of her hair is perfect as always.
