Christmas Tag

It is 'Christmas Tag' time
at FSC this fortnight.

Everyone is in full swing with their xmas cards and there are some gorgeous cards all over blogland!!!
Me...I'm a little slow to get going this year (again)
and the chance to make a xmas tag really was very welcome here!


This tag has a marbled distress paint background and some 2nd generation stamping of snowflakes from Kaszazz. This Stampendous angel has been...slowly...cut out and water coloured with distress inks.  Then I decided to add some feathers to the back of her to give her that 'high in the sky' feel.

The rest is just some holly and doves and a sentiment stamped onto some ribbon that has some distress ink added to it so that it blends in with the card.
A tip with this - use Staz-on ink for this (the others run a bit).

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,

That's a stunning tag, Dot - the shading on the angel's dress is really beautiful, and I love the white doves against the glow of the background. Sorry to have missed so much, but I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of visiting.
