Time for another tag today inspired by Linda's Twelve Tags - Week #8.  Her challenge is sponsored by her store The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

 I loved the soft background she created on her tag and the Santa image and pops of red.  The images I had for Christmas wouldn't have worked from a size or following her design.   So I dug through my seasonal images drawer and found this Thanksgiving turkey image which worked well with the design.

I distressed my background using all the different Metallic stains with a touch of dark brown dye ink sponged around the edges.

I stamped the Inkadinkado image using black ink on the tag.  I then stamped it again on a separate piece of white cardstock and colored it with the distress inks and a waterbrush.   I cut them out and layered them onto the tag.

I distressed burlap using the metallic inks and cut for trim. 

I added in the background the Thanks Definition from Hero Arts along with Memory Box leaves floating in the background.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I cut the clear sentiment so I could align it along the side.

Thanks for stopping by!

  11. This is really sensational, Suzz! I really love the image and you have colored it beautifully. I really like that you used a Thanksgiving theme.
