HO!HO!HO!


Entering this TAG into the Official Magnolia Inspiration blog challenge here for Challenge 54 using a Magnolia stamp and a flower on a tag.

After I had colored the image I somehow got a speck of red Copic ink on the outside of the image over about an inch away. I thought oh dear lord..... this is ruined! Never say never.  ROFL.   I took cool grays, Cool Shadow, Blush, and added more specks and squiggles.  and blended and blended.  And on my outside edges and my embellishments I used some snow to give it yet another Chrsitmas cold look.  I loved how the background turned out at the end.  

I used a cute Tilda and made a Christmas tag.  Cheese cloth was dyed with Walnut stain.  Film strip from Ranger, flower I made using the Pinecone die from Ranger.  Stick pin, heart from my stash, leaves from MM.  Liquid pearls.  Lace, pearls, twine from SU.  And my new chevron paper by Simple Stories..

Thanks for dropping by.  I've haven't posted lately due to getting ready to leave for a crop/classes for half a week.  I hope all the prep work I've done will pay off!  8-)
