I seem to have a hard time with tags, but made one last week and had fun with it and decided to try another. I knew that I wanted to use this Santa stamp that I bought about 7 years ago and has only seen ink once. I made it monochromatic and kinda vintage-y. I used Distress Inks Antique Linen and Walnut Stain for the background, and I stamped the Santa then masked it and stamped the music stamp a couple of times, then the flourish, and the postage stamp. Then I drew a tiny calender, the word "December" is stamped from a mini stamp from Making Memories and the tiny flourish on each side is from one of JustRite's font sets. I distressed and inked the edges, and popped the calendar and postage mark up on dimensionals that's about it. I am entering my tag in the Shabby Tea Room's Tag You're It! Challenge, Let's Ink It Up Vintage Tag/Bookmark, Our Vintage Affair's challenge this month is vintage tags, Sir Stampsalot's challenge this month is distressed, and over at 2 Sisters Challenge the challenge this week is monochromatic.
Thanks for stopping in. Have a great weekend. :)
