Joyful Poinsettia Tag

It's Day 12 of Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends.

This is tag 9 for me.  I'm behind.

I've used bits from my UFO box again.

The poinsettia was stamped, heat embossed and colored on the back with Blendabilities.
It was already cut and ready to go.

I popped it on a die cut tag that had been stenciled with some Antique Linen ink.
Then I fussy cut a piece of gold foil a bit bigger and dry embossed it.

A snippet of sheer gold ribbon to adorn the top and 
some gold gems for the center and it was done.

My mixed media are, stamping, heat embossing, coloring with alcohol markers,
 stenciling, die cutting and dry embossing.

Wooh! That's a lot for one little tag!

There are a lot of awesome tags in Loll's gallery.  I hope you'll check them out.
And I hope you'll add one, or two, or three, or.....

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

So pretty! Love your vellum poinsettia Bonnie. The colours are really vibrant and beautiful. Love the little bit of golden stenciled flourish in behind. And the dry embossed gold foil tag in the background adds lots of shine and dimension / texture. The gold sheer bow is just perfect. Thanks so much for sharing with my tag event!! xx

Your poinsettia is gorgeous, Bonnie! I marvel at those who work with velum and color on the back side. I have not had success with that. Framed in gold this looks fabulous! Love the matching gold ribbon too!

Love the vibrant look of the poinsettia embossed on vellum and colored with blendabilities -- haven't used that technique in a long time so gotta try that soon. Classy looking tag!

What a perfect poinsettia - it is gorgeous heat embossed on vellum and coloured so vibrantly! And I love the layered tags, especially the embossed gold background one.
