Happy Christmas Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve!

We are off to my MIL's to have a Christmas feast with my in-laws. We always look forward to Christmas Eve with the extended family and Christmas Day at home.

I created a tag for Louise's Tuesday Tag challenge. The challenge this week is to create a  Christmas tag with silver or gold.
I created the tag as an ornament/tag with the lacy square shape die cut and a cracked glass image. The background was sponged with blue dye ink. The bird was die cut from the Sizzix birdcage die. Stamped with the holiday trio definitions and sponged with Vintage Photo Dye Ink.

The holly was stamped using a pigment ink and colored with watercolor pencils. Finish everything with clear embossing and fold to crack. Apply brown pigment ink over the surface.

Stamp the sentiment (Memory Box - Merry Christmas) onto white cardstock and sponge edges with vintage photo dye ink.

Accent edges of pieces using Krylon Silver pen.

Have a lovely Christmas Eve!
