Hi everyone. Welcome to the second day of my "Twelve Tags of Christmas" Event. For twelve days (Nov. 3 - 14) I will be posting a mixed media Christmas tag along with a tag made by a special Guest Designer. We hope our tags inspire you! Come join in the fun and link up your Mixed Media* Christmas tags below.
* For this event, Mixed Media is defined as stamps + ink, plus two other elements which add texture and/or dimension.
This tag (2 1/8" x 3 5/8") was inspired by another one I saw on Pinterest. It is sponged with Peacock Feather's Distress Inks with a little Evergreen Bough ink added to the edges. Large and small snowflakes are randomly stamped all over the tag in pigment white ink. A piece of drywall tape was cut to size, and then painted with silver acrylic paint. The Christmas tree and three snowflakes are die-cut from white ... silver acrylic paint was sponged on the bottom edges of each layer of the tree die-cuts. The sentiment is stamped, cut out and popped up on the tag ... and lots of small drops of dazzling details glitter glue was added for sparkle. A white and silver ribbon finishes the tag.

Today's special Guest Designer is Kylie (Kylie is Addicted to Stamps) ... she really is!! :) Most of you probably already know Kylie ... but in case you don't, let me fill you in. She is the owner to two challenge blogs --- Addicted to Stamps and More; and Addicted to CAS (I’m on both Design Teams – yay!). Ane she runs a new stamping forum called Happy Little Stampers where members share info on supplies, techniques, and anything else that comes to mind. Kylie is also on the design teams for Inspired by Stamping, and STAMPlorations. She is busy, busy, busy!! ... and she makes the most beautiful cards. She is a master of colouring, specializing in Spectrum Noir markers … and she is just starting the foray into mixed media and loving it!
