Christmas tags

OK so I am a bit addicted to making tags this year, so I joined in a challenge over at Allcraftz today, the rules were that there had to be at least 3 tags, they had to be in the same colour scheme & there had to be at least 1 christmas tree, 1 dove & some stars. These are what I came up with, the background I made a few weeks ago with Glimmer Mist & my own home made Glimmer Mist (a concoction of PearlEx, gum arabic & water, see my post back at the beginning of November) & these ones I masked using a flourish design I cut on my PI on cardstock (disposable! :) ). I stamped the backgrounds with various stamps (including a music stamp from my new set from Stamp-It!), embossed them with versamark & distress embossing powder in Fired Brick & distressed the edges & inked them with Vintage Photo Distress ink & then embossed them as well. The christmas tree & dove were both stamped with Versamark & embossed with Peeled Paint embossing powder & then inked & edged with a krylon gold leafing pen. I also added various metal embellishments, some beaded trim & some Prima christmas flowers & a button push through by 7 Gypsies. I think they turned out really well, I love them!
