Christmas tag swap

I created this tag for a Christmas tag swap I've played in for the last few years.  This tag was fun to make and I'm pleased with the results.  I used 2 different colours of distress inks.  The ink pads were smooshed - highly technical term "smooshed" -  on a craft sheet.  The smooshed ink was sprayed with water until the ink beaded.  Tags were then moved around in one colour, dried and then smooshed in the second colour of ink and dried.  Then tag was stamped with the various images and coloured.   No two tags are exactly alike.   Simple procedure with pretty nice results!

Hi Storybeader

Sorry for not replying earlier - I didn't realize there was a comment waiting to publish.

Thanks for the kind words about the tag. I was really please with the end result.

Unfortunately, I've not been able to get into Art Week yet. Looking forward to getting into the swing of things again when I return from vacation.
