Darcy at Art and Sole tag challenge

Another challenge set by Darcy on her blog. Tags, one stamp used  many different ways. Why not I said to myself let's have a go. I only manage 5 but was happy with the result.

I decided to use the bauble ( I cannot remeber wher from ) tags are cut from my tim holtz die measuring roughly 3x6 I do not have many as you go photos as I kept forgetting but I have added the details.

The coloured baubles robins and presents are all painted using fresco paints from Paper Artsy. Colours I used were London bus Pumpkin Soup and South Pacific. I mixed the blue and yellow to get the green for leaves and then all three colours for the robin. I used distress ink round the edges of all cards. 

1st tag I used a stencil from dylusions and used fresco paint in Vintage Lace (I adore this colour) and Lilac.

I then stamped the bauble in chipped sapphire added some sparkle and a ribbon.

2 nd card I stamped the bauble in silver all over the card then added the cut out and painted robin bauble and holly.

3rd card I stamped a snow flake all over then added the bauble and presents add some sparkle and a ribbon

The greeting is from JOFY 20

4th card I distress the card then used the bauble stamp round the edges to give it a frame. I then added a christmas tree stencil more glitter and ribbon.

And the last card again distressed the tag  added some music script and then the bauble and holly.

Another great challenge from Darcy thankYou.
