25 Days of Christmas Tags


I have tag-phobia. Yes, it's real. I don't know what it is, but the idea of making a tag always freaks me out.

I made this for Day 6 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. The things we'll do for our friends, right? lol!

I've been dying to get this new dove out and play and I put together a tag that I was actually happy with. Then my daughter said that it looks just like the Twitter logo. No wonder it felt so comfortable! The blue background is blended distress inks with water spritzed on it and then sprayed with Tsukineko shimmer spray. I added a border of Stardust Stickles to the white dove and 'under-layer' and a line of Silver Stickles to the bottom of the tag.

I used:
-Neat & Tangled Classic Tag 1
-Essentials by Ellen Bird Shapes

PS - I'll be making another tag on November 16 when Muse: ChristmasVisions will be the sponsor.

Gorgeous! I love the look of tags but I seldom make any because I have no real use for them. I can see myself using something like this on a card, though. Have a wonderful Sunday! No crafty time for me, I'm afraid, since I need to finish a translation by tomorrow morning...

I can realy to that! When started it is okay, but starting one...boy o boy!
And still it is just paper and you show here that you make as beautiful ones as your cards!
Have a relaxing sunday! :)

I think this is so pretty!! I love the dove. The colors might look like the Twitter Logo but the tag does not. Don't you just love kids?

The tag base sponging is gorgeous! The dove is perfect with it, and your steady hand with the Stickles is admirable.
