Be Merry

Tag #8 for Linda's Funkie Junkie 12 Tags challenge sponsored by her boutique the Funkie Junkie Boutique.  She has a charming homespun Christmas tag this week.

 I was thinking old fashioned Christmas and had the Graphic 45 School Days paper which had me stencilling letters and rulers.
 A hint of Ranger Distress Spray (Barn Door & Walnut Stain)   and a lovely deep red. 

The next step was to find some adornments I added some snowflakes and stars to accentuate the tag.
 The stamps are Indigo Blue and Artistic Outpost - Snowy Woods.  The snowflakes are Stampendous dies which are fun because you can layer them to get solid or outline snowflakes.  Sponged with a touch of Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo.  The tiny snowflakes are punches.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
