An Inkurable Shabby Christmas tag

Over at Inkurable Stampers they are having a Shabby Christmas challenge. Now that craft shows are over I can now play with paper and this is what I came up with for the challenge.

This is a manilla shipping tag which I used Dusty Concord (DI) distress ink and distressed the background. Then while that was drying I painted some  Tim Holtz grungeboard snowflakes with acylic paints, the top snowflake is a metallic and the darker is a flat dark purple. The background of the stamp I stamped again in Dusty Concord DI with a snowflake stamp from  Inkadinkado Ornate Christmas stamp collection. I also inked the edges of the tag with the same ink.
The image I used was from FlickR , a great source for art images, and, I used Starform glitter border to give it a bit of bling. I added some lace and button embellishments and the Let is Snow stamp was from Studio G Holiday stamps also stamped in Dusty Concord and it was mounted on a paint chip strip.

Well thanks for looking and stay tuned for Lesley's version of the 12 tags of Christmas.
