A Simple Christmas

Hello everyone, not long to go now until the big day.  Have you managed to do all your Christmas shopping? I still have a few bits to get.  
Over on Sweet Stamps we have a lovely Christmas challenge for you and that's "Simple Christmas" . 
Here's my take on the theme. 

I decided to make a tag again (love doing these) To get the white image I used white paint, dried with a heat tool then distressed over the top and it creates this wonderful resit.  You could use white embossing powder too. 

The flower is one of the new flower strips from Cheery Lynn (Love this sooo much!!) I have inked with barn door reinkers in a mini mister and added perfect pearls to the mixture to give that wonderful pearly shimmer.. 
The seam binding I have sprayed with water and scrunched up and left to dry.  

Hope you like my project today. Don't forget to head on over to the Sweet Stamps challenge blog and enter into the challenge you could be the luck winner of the $20 spending spree in the Aladdin's Cave of Craft which in the Sweet Stamps online store.

I can see why you love tags, Tamara. You certainly have a knack for creating lovely ones. The flower is gorgeous and your resist technique is just wonderful.

Awesome design, I always love your tags. Love how you distressed the image and that poinsettia looks so real.

Christmas shopping is NOT done Tamara! I'd much rather be creating than shopping. Your Christmas tag is so beautiful….love the Fairy Queen, she is one of my favorites! Merry Christmas from North Carolina!
