Christmas waves....


I had fun playing around making this tag.  I started with a Ranger #12 tag and cut it to be only 5 1/2" long.  I sprayed Distress Spray Stains (fired brick, iced spruce, evergreen bough) onto the tag and dried it.  I laid the Tim Holtz stencil hollybough onto one half of the tag, covered the rest of the tag with a piece of paper and sprayed on Distress Stain Spray picket fence... I repeated for the other half of the tag and dried it.  Next I used the same stencil along the left and top to add embossing ink and embossed the holly with Wendy Vecchi's fern green embossing powder and then added shading around the leaves with a charcoal pencil smudging it with a blending stump.  The quote (Quietfire Design - Christmas waves a magic wand - now available cling mounted) is stamped with Ranger's Archival Ink jet black and embossed with detail black powder.  Ranger's pigment ink snow cap is sponged around the edges to give a soft or misty look.  Finally I sprayed picket fence spray stain on my craft sheet, picked some up with a water brush and flicked it across the tag blocking off the stamped quote.  I colored some crinkle ribbon with the same Spray Stains as used on the tag and added it to the top.  Idea-ology tidings token and trinket pin, and some old Prima poinsettias finish it off.
