Lots going on in today's tag. A little too much for me to be honest! I am pretty happy with how this came out though. I adore this Santa stamp from the new Oxford Impressions St. Nicholas collection. I think he really 'makes' the tag. The music and snowflakes are also from OI.
I had trouble with the white paint absorbing the Distress ink. I also had a hard time getting the black ink to come off of it. Finally I decided to just leave it alone. If I'd had more energy I would have started over and used the Faux Designer Paper technique from the Dec 08 issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter. I think it would have worked much better for me!
I changed it a bit by adding my favorite French border trim from RockCandy Studios. Since my Santa had fairly straight edges, it looked a little weird just floating in the middle of the tag. I think the trim helps set the image off.
Thanks everyone, for your comments on my previous tags. I hope everyone is having as much fun with these as I am!
