Tag Tuesday Challenge # 26

Pink, Burgandy and Brown Holiday tag... Sounds deliciously vintage doesn't it?

Louise's challenge this week for her tag this week is a color and Christmas tag challenge.


This beautiful ornament was something I picked up at Hobby Lobby in the Christma aisles and have been wanting to use it on a card. Unfortunately the picture does not show how pretty the ornament is.

The ribbon was a RAK from Anna-Karin (thanks anna-karin). I have been wanting to use the script behind the stamped embossed image ever since I saw Lisette's gorgeous cards. (Check out her blog here)

The script stamp is from Stampers Anonymous - Letter to Santa. The Holly stamp is a Hero Arts Design Block- Holly Flourish. The Christmas Wishes sentiment is from a collection from Cornish Heritage Farms - Night before Christmas.

The script was stamped using a pigment ink onto a pink tag. Then the holly background was stamped using versarmark. Heat emboss using clear embossing powder. Sponge brown dye ink over the top.

Outline partially the images using white gel pen.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
