Tag It!

 Happy Wednesday!  Time for a new challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique called Tag it!  Teri is hosting it and here is her description: 

"Now is the time to be sure you have enough holiday gift tags. Show us you best festive holiday tag."

Who doesn't love a jolly Santa?  This one from Stampers Anonymous captured my eye.  I decided to use him on a tag with lots of pretty die cuts.  But I have a feeling he would be a fabulous tag all by himself! 
The tag started with a repeated text with a lovely red ink.  I originally started with a large tag and decided I wanted to shorten the tag to make Santa shine.  I then stamped santa and colored him with a touch of watercolor pencils.  

I decided I wanted to give him open eyes and added the circles and pupils for his eyes.  I added a twinkle with a white highlight and glossy accents on his pupils. 

I then die cut a variety of holiday greenery.  I sponged them with a mix of green and red dye inks.  I finished with a few bells and ribbon tied into a bow. 

I hope you are excited to play along.  Jump over to the blog to see all the beautiful tags my teamies designed.  The overall winner will be offered the chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the drawing for the chance to win a $25.00 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the twinkle you have added in Santa's much better with open eyes, so he can see who's naughty or nice! Great tag with the bright bow and bells and greenery, but I agree, I think Santa alone would make a wonderful tag!

  2. This is so festive and fun! LOVE that big Santa face!
