Christmas Tag

I am back with my second tag...   I am playing along with Linda's Funkie Junkie Tags and this one is inspired by week #5 sponsored by her Funkie Junkie Boutique.   

Linda's tag had a sweet Santa image framed out in the center of the tag.  I started with wooden frame which I backed with a stamped image of Father Christmas.  I stained the frame with brown distress stain and added hints of gold with gold paint and embossing paste.  The background is a mix of paints, stamping, tissue paper, and distress inks. I died ribbon and lace to coordinate.

Products:  Ranger Distress Stain - Walnut, Ranger Archival Ink - Coffee, Brown Pearls, Brown Lace, Twine, Ranger Distress Ink  - Vintage Photo, Aged Mahogany  Artistic Outpost - Snowy Woods, Ranger Distress Paint - Gold, Ranger Distress Stains - Gold
