12 Tags for Christmas - April

This was inspired by Tim's April tag and his faux mosaic/paint resist technique but rather than follow along exactly, I went with my impressions instead.

The background is a page from the Dapper paper stash die cut with a Mixed Media thinlet to cover an entire tag. Purple cardstock was pasted behind it then crackle medium was spread over the cut-out areas and it was sanded and stained with Distress ink to give it an aged, old-world appearance.

The angel (Somerset Studio) and framed text (Kaisercraft's Frosted paper collection) serve as the centerpiece.

The tag border was embellished with Platinum Stickles (distressed with walnut ink) and tiny dots of Liquid Pearls.

  5. What an awesome tag!! I'm totally fascinated by this awesome border, it reminds me of the beautiful "Klosterarbeiten", one of my bavarian relatives used to make, when I was a child. Tiny treasures, always framed with an intricate golden border. Thank you so much for sharing this great inspiration!

  6. I have no words... this tag is spectacular!!! What an amazing background, and the angel is wonderful! Brilliant!
