December Mixed Media Tag #3 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I have another Christmas project to share with you today, apologies, I’ve not got too many more to share now lol! I’ve been playing again, lol, and here is the end result …

I love this tag!
Lots of lovely layers, depth and texture
All the lovely details
The skates stamp is beautiful
I managed to capture a little of the bling on this photograph

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Country View Crafts Challenge 
Christmas with the options of Greens, Reds & Rust
I created some rust on the leaves at the bottom of the tag

Mix It Up Challenge Blog MIUCB#8 Anything Goes

Rubber Dance Art Stamps Challenge Colour Challenge

Rubber Dance Art Stamps Forever Stamping Challenge

Scrapy Land Challenge #80 Anything Goes
I used Crafters Companion and Tutti Designs dies

Multiple left overs, snippets and old stash went into the creating of this tag, lol, it has made the stash of snippets a little smaller but as we all know they grow when we’re not looking. It feels really good to use my old embellishment stash with my newer tools and mediums. I have to apologise in advance too because the list of supplies used to create this tag is huge and I decided to not add my step by steps because it would be a really long post.

I’ve decided for the rest of the year that I am going to drop the steps by steps as I have a long list of chores. Have a lovely week and thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
