Tagging Santa

Afternoon Peeps,

Here is a tag I made for the HCA swap this month.

I used some Cracklepaint in Fired Brick to create a ... er... crackled (!) effect on the top part of the tag and then blended Fired Brick Distress Ink over the top of the rest of the tag.

I then used some Glimmer Mist in Antique Brass to make a lovely golden shimmer effect over the surface.



I stamped the Santa, which is a Tim Holtz collection stamp and then using a fine paint brush, I coloured in Santa's beard and the holly on his hat, using watered down acrylic paint for this.




The holly motif at the top of the tag is made from Grungeboard and I finished off the tag using Distress Stickles in Fired Brick for the holly berries. The Grunge and the Distress Stickles can be bought from The Artistic Stamper.




I covered the back of the tag with heavenly Cosmo Cricket papers and added another Grungeboard piece, which was painted with Cracklepaint and then fancied up with more Distress Stickles.

Thanks for looking.....
