12 Tags of Christmas-#9

Wow Tag 9 already......Yikes this means Christmas is drawing near real fast.
This tag I like, it is simple yet very festive, as you can see I really like the colour green.
I distressed the tag using Vintage Photo DI and inked the edges as well. I stamped the background using Studio G holiday Falala stamp in a Rhubarb ink. I tore a bit of music hymnal music and inked the edges as well with VP ink. The tree is a grungeboard from a collection of Tim Holtz, I paitned the tree in green acrylic paint then added a bit of Decoart textured snow. Let dry.
I found some green ribbon again in a stash of mine, I am starting to think I am a hoarder, and I took a flip top off of a can and used it as a belt buckle. I had seen this done before and once I did it here I thought that looked kind of cute.
The image is free from Flickr and I bordered it with some Starform glittery irridescent peel and stick border. Love that stuff it comes in all colours and widths.
That is it my friends.
2 tags today but separate posts so you can keep commenting and another post yet to show you my Inkurable Stampers entry for December.

I will be back on track tomorrow....stay tuned
