Hels Tag of Christmas - #3

Goodly Morning... as promised, I am back with Hels' Tags of Christmas Tag #3 to giveaway... another one totally inspired by all those amazing ones by the Duke of Distress... oh and while I think about tags... did you know that Jennie is running a Tag Withdrawal competition??? Deets are all HERE and the linky-thingy is in the sidebar :O))

On with my tag and how I made it... it is up for grabs to one randomly chosen comment :O)) The winner will be announced on Thursday 30th December 2010. Anyways, how I made this... firstly, I smooshed Frayed Burlap DI onto the craft sheet and spritzed with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearl Mists and dipped the tag into the inkyness, drying with a heatgun and re-dipping until I had the look I wanted. Next, I added a few drops of Fired Brick Re-Inker to a Mini Mister of water and lightly spritzed the tag. I popped a generous layer of Fired Brick Cracklepaint and allowed this to dry. Once dried, I stamped the music score in Walnut Stain DI and wiped off the excess from the Cracklepainted bit. (this is a nice look as the smudged DI goes into the crackles making it look a bit... erm... like me... old that is ROFL) I made a paper rosette using the Seasonal Paper Stash and the Rosette Alterations Die and popped an Idea-ology Crown into the centre. Behind the rosette is some mini tinsel from my own stash and... some dyed elasticated Idea-ology Trim - this was coloured with the Fired Brick Re-Inker mix and then dried on a radiator... drying with a heat gunmakes it shrivel up!!!

Along the bottom of the tag I added some of the flowery Trim, which had been coloured with the Fired Brick Re-Inker mist I had made. I popped a bit of tinsel behind this for a bit of extra bling. Next I made a little postcard using a Seasonal Sticker, mounted onto mountboard, sanded, edged with Walnut Stain and then stuck into a Memo Pin. The Facet at the top of the tag was stuck onto some Seasonal Stash paper using Glossy Accents and then fastened with a Jump Ring. Finally, I used some White UTEE on Grungeboard numbers, heating it til it bubbled and then adding smidges of Black Dabber to age it.

So, would you like to own this tag??? I hope you like it and... I just need to take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has joined in with the monthly Challenge this month - WOWZERS we have had a seriously huge amount of entries so if I haven't got around to yours yet, please bear with, I am on my way LOL Thanks for looking and have a grand day! TTFN
