Tim's Tag #10 - O Holy Night

Tim's Tag #10 uses some lovely clear pieces with images backed by foil.  I followed his lead and tweaked it a bit to fit my images. I kept my tag very rustic and simple this time as I featured a few stamps with the Madonna and Child.  The image is from a retired Hero Arts stamp which I love. I was so happy to find it in a pile of discontinued stamps.  The other two images are from another stamp featuring the holy family.

I took the clear acrylic tags and stamped on them using StazOn ink.  I then backed them with aluminum foil and applied alcohol inks on the reverse side from where I stamped.  I then sponged a little versamark around the edges and embossed with the Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing enamel. (I love this stuff and I am going to have to order some more as I am almost out!)

The background of the tag is stamped with Memory Box Vintage Christmas Words in black ink and sponged with brown dye ink. I then layered a music sheet torn over the top and distressed everything with the distressing tool and sponge.

I finished it off with the burlap, sentiment and some gold embossed brads.

Thanks for stopping by!
