The holly bears the crown.
Well it is time for another of Linda's 12 tags of Christmas....yes still playing catch up!but before I start I want to wish you all a happy and healthy new year! Fingers crossed that 2014 brings good things for all...healthy and happy times..
( I went for a monochrome...no shock there then and used kraft feel for mine, but used same stencil and kept layout fairly similar )
"Art, to me, is the interpretation of the impression which nature makes upon the eye and brain. (Childe Hassam)"
I started by masking, as Linda had a central area and then applying Wendy Vecchi's gorgeous white texture paste through the new holly Tim Holtz stencil. When dry I applied frayed burlap all over my tag. I then edged the tag using tonic edge distresser. In the areas where I had not applied the paste I added some vintage photo through the same stencil.
Following Linda's lead I added distress glitter (tarnished brass) to the berry areas.
For the frame I cut the ornate frame from corrugated card ( from Linda's boutique) and lightly inked areas with Vintage photo. I added the same sentiment as Linda, stamped in coffee archival and clear embossed...a trick learnt from Alison.( aka butterfly).
I added holly leaves cut from kraft resist and inked over with script from Santa's letters set...adding rusty wire twirls and also some rusty bells for berries.
I added some dyed seam binding and that finishes the tag #10.
I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year...I am still on a blog break...spending time with my family ..just trying to catch up with finishing these tags and DT posts ...see you all real soon
