I sure am having fun Loll and I can clearly see you are too. I love the vibrancy of the green against the brown of the background and then the pop of red. Fabulous die cut holly and one fabulous tag X

Beautiful Loll, I really wish I could keep my paper towels colour coordinated, every time I see one of your paper towel background I'm in awe. I love your holly branch and the shiny berries.

The highlights on your holly are beautiful, Loll! Wow, what a gorgeous blend. Love the background on this one. Your painting always steals the show! Julia's tag is fabulous and can't wait to hop over to her blog to see how she created that background.

What luscious berried on your holly Loll - love your watery background and wonderful bright green leaves! Thanks so much for having me play along again this year!! xx

Loving your bright green and more vintage green shades together Loll. Beautifully colored die cut holly image with the Nuvo Drop berries. Your sentiment is perfect following the holly curve, too. TFS my friend.

Julia's dimensional and creative mixed media tag is awesome too. Hugs..Nancy

Thanks to your tag event, I feel like I dine at a Michelin Star restaurant with all kinds of menu items every night these days, Loll!
What a beautiful holly branch and berries! The super-shiny berries look so pretty and the coloring (love the colors!) and the sponging of the leaves are fantastic! Love the subtle paper towel pattern with the splash watercoloured background!

Goodness, that dimensional, texture-y holly is fantastic, Loll ... the shine on those berries really makes them pop ... love how the scrunched ribbon mimics the wonderful depth on this fabulous tag! What a handsome reindeer from Julia ... those shiny hooves are just so fun! Hugs, Anita :)

Your ideas are great and so diverse !!
Yesterday I finally had some time to try out your technique. It was not difficult and it was a lot of fun. I show my cards on my blog at the moment.
Thank you fpr your inspiration.

Linda said...

I'm loving this year's event .... so much inspiration. Two more stunning tags. I love the colours of yours Loll, the background looks fab. And the holly branch, well that looks so real!
Julia's tag is so cute .... love it! xx

Pat said...

I adore your holly with the gorgeous glossy berries Loll, and the splash background with the pretty texture from the kitchen towel makes looks great, and the bright green ribbon finishes it really well. I think Julia's Rudolph is such fun with that sentiment to go with it, and the red and white bakers twine complements it perfectly. x

Susan said...

Beautiful holly, great splashed background, and wonderful vibrant ribbon!

Tee said...

Great color and texture! The ribbon is perfect!

BożenA said...
