Christmas Tag from Chocolate Baroque

Hi there folks my  project today features some of this months new stamps from Chocolate Baroque. I've created a large tag using Bearing Gifts and stamps from Sparkling Trees and some stencilling for the background.

I've used one of the Ranger Giant Manila tags for this project. I began by splodging some Distress Stains (Gold, Picket Fence, Tea Dye and Broken China) onto my craft sheet and misting with a little water. I dragged the tag through the colour several time and while it was drying I splashed on a little water. I stamped the stars from Christmas Candlelight with Versamark ink and embossed with Gold embossing powder and then applied texture paste through a star stencil. Once the texture paste was dry I added gilding wax in shades of gold, silver and copper to the stars.

I stamped 'Bearing Gifts' and coloured with Derwent pencils, cut the image out and layered it up over some hessian, gold mesh and a little green ribbon. I added a sentiment from Christmas Magic, stamped on a little kraft tag and embossed with Gold EP.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas: Quantum leap (N not a card)
Bloggers: Backgrounds
Crafting by Designs: get ready for Christmas
Little Claire's: Christmas in August
Winter Wonderland: Christmas songs/carols (We Three Kings)

Thanks so much for popping by today, hope to see you again soon

  1. How lovely - I love the starry textured background, and if I'm not careful I'll be humming Christmas carols...
