I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Christmas Tag - September's Inspirational Post

I am just back from my summer holidays and have completed this Christmas Tag for one of my inspirational posts at LeAnn's World 101 on Facebook.  
The image is called Dani and can be found in LeAnn's Etsy shop

I free formed cut out my tag base then added some Christmas designer paper on the next layer of the tag.  I added my cute copic coloured image of Dani to a background oval made using a Christmas embossed paper and distressed ink. 

Closer look.

To complete the card I added some silver balls to her sweater, a "Merry" die cute,  ribbon and some small gems. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Pop over to LeAnn's Facebook group and be inspired by the works created by the design team and friend of LeAnn's World 101 group.
