I wanted to try and get a tag in for Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas challenge. She has guest designers making tags for it too each day. It's almost over! So I thought I would rush out a tag. Yeah, it never goes well when you rush does it?! But it is what it is and I'm going with this tag anyway. So please go over to Loll's blog and look at each day's tags, you will be amazed! Oh did I tell you the tags have to be mixed media?! lol Yes, you head me right. But as it turns out, we all do mixed media and don't even know we are doing it! Anyway it is all explain on Loll's blog, so go over and check it out. She will have the linky open for a while longer, to the 25th I believe. So you do have some time to make a Christmas tag and join in on the fun.
For my mix media, I used stamping, die cuts, wet embossing and the Splash Watercolor background. It didn't turn out as well as when Loll does it, but hey, I'm working on it. lol My ornament should have been die cut in a different color to it showed up on the background better, but I was to lazy to die cut it again. So this is what I have to offer, not great but will work I think. I also used all snippets to make this tag, I'm so proud of myself for doing that. My dies and stamp are NBUS as well, so felt good to use it! Now, I would do things differently if I was making this tag over again. And maybe I will make another and fix my blunders...But for now, this is it.
As always, thanks for dropping by and visiting a spell. Your comments always bring sunshine to my day and a big smile from ear to ear. I know I'm behind once again, but will be working to catch back up with my commenting as well.
