tag #3 Village Rose

For my first tag creation i've used tim holtz tag in a tealish green, inked the edge with his new distress ink , embossed the christmas village a leftover piece of white card stock which had been sprayed with ranger's liquid pearl mists, used the new .... distress ink to highlight the village. added a piece of snowflake embossed spruce green card stock under the village. at the top is a bella rose flourish cut from graphic 45 holly paper, a leaf spray with stickles and a vellum rose. (saw selma's blog about vellum flowers and had to try. the only vellum i had has blue baby footprints on it (yuck) but once cut and painted with h2o  (silver & pink) on the back side you can't see the footprints. (yea) a few drops of teal liquid pearls and a teal 1/8" velvet ribbon tie and wa-la my first tag! I am entering this in:

Joan's Gardens Challenge #12 - Christmas tags

All three tags were made using parts and pieces left over from other projects or items i was practicing with (vellum flowers for instance). Some of the pieces have been hanging around my work desk for awhile so i do not remember the exact die, ink or ef that was used. Let's just say all supplies are from my stash. LOL



  1. Nan, your flower turned out so pretty and a nice addition to this tag. Can't even see the foot prints.

    Thanks so much for joining us for Joan's Gardens weekly challenge. You did a great job
