Holly & Script Tag

There's still time to enter at Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas


I got behind so here is my 10th tag


I die cut this fantastic shaped tag from watercolor paper and used
Loll's Smooshing with Ink technique.
to color it up.

Then I die cut this beautiful holly and colored it with Zigs and my Aqua Painter.

I finished off with some stamped script.  I picked up the wrong color ink for the first stamping
so that's a bit darker than I intended. Oh well.

I used stamping, watercolor smoosh, die cuts, and watercoloring.

This unusual shape of the tag, it's a great idea. Beautifully done, great rustic look. I love this punch PB, but is no longer available: - ((I can only envy it :-))

Oh Bonnie, I am so loving your beautiful tag in that shape! I forget you can really make a tag out of any shape, and the ornament shape is perfect for the holidays. I love how your smooshing came out and I love your holly vine. The scrip stamping looks great and I was thinking before I read what you wrote that the darker color on the script looks really good! I love how vintage this tag looks! Love, love, love!! Hugs, Brenda

I think this is my favourite of your tags! Love the beautiful colours of the smooshed background - perfect to set off the holly! And that is a great sentiment - I might have to look for it.
