Another Tag.

Good evening all and thanks for popping in. 
How has your week been so far? Good I hope. 
I have been trying to get my long list of orders completed. 
I do love this time of year when people order so many personalised gifts, 
I have been busy with pyrography, cards and some canvas work...
I feel like one of Santa’s little helpers...
Going with the festive theme I have made a tag today to share with you. 

I have used the Sizzix tag die , 
Cut out a piece of the decorative paper from the Shenandoah pad 

So many great areas to choose 

I also cut the tag out of white card to use as a backing 

I glued them together...then edged the tag with black distress ink. Adding some background with the Script stencil . 

Next I added some stamping using black Archival ink . 

Some foliage around the edge..just to frame the design. 

Then some black ink and torn paper to ground the carol singers, and the moon mask and black ink to add 
the moon. 

Next some colour using gel pens and then some snow...
Using chunky white embossing enamel. 
Finally a little more black ink , just around the edge of the tag . 

And the finishing touch of a ribbon and some small pine cones . 
I just added some white Posca marker to the cones ...just to look like snow...
I do believe we might be in for some snow at the end of the week,,,
It is certainly going to go even thermals at the ready..
Before I go...
I just wanted to share a photo of the little man with you. 
At the weekend it was the neonatal Christmas party at Stepping Hill hospital, and Elliot bless him slept through his first 
meeting with Santa...

But don’t worry he still got a present ...
Thanks Santa..

Take care all...
Love and hugs 
Jo. xxxxx

Beautiful tag, think I might try and make some for presents this year. Love how you have made a little work of art on it, your last one with a blue colour was beautiful too. Glad Elliot got a present from Santa, he must be on the good boy list. Hope Eric has recovered from his op. Xx
