Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas 2017

I made another tag for Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas, using the tissue paper background.

This background was colored with the leftover ink I used for coloring the tissue paper the other day. I spritzed water over the leftover ink so the colors were much lighter, but I liked them.

I die-cut a few snow flakes from a piece of silver foil paper and decorated the tag with them. I stenciled just a few glimmer snowfalls on the background. The sentiment was heat-embossed in silver on a strip of vellum. I used a silver cord instead of a ribbon this time.

I've been enjoying looking at the wonderful holiday tags in the gallery.
Thank you, Loll, for hosting this fun event!
