A #10 Manila tag

I haven't made a tag for ages.  Actually I feel as though I haven't been creative for ages!

As you know I can be quite dylusional and I belong to a group on Facebook for all those who have a similar addiction.  It's the Dyan Reaveley Society of Art Journaling.  If you're a Dyan fan, why not check us out!

Every now and again Dyan sets us a challenge using her products for an art journaling page.  I haven't been able to join in the other challenges but I decided I would give this one a go.  We had to use her snowflake stencil, Dylusions London Blue spray ink and Santa's Beard from the Christmas Accessories stamp.  I don't have the last item so I improvised.

I sprayed the London Blue and the Vibrant Turquoise onto my glass plate and squirted some water on as well.  I swiped a #10 tag through the inks and used another tag to take off the excess ink.

I sprayed water through the snowflake stencil and turned the stencil over and pressed the wet stencil on the bottom of the tag.

I stamped the holly down one side of the tag.  And painted the leaves with Holly Green Mica ink from Dyan's pre-Ranger range.  I used Christmas Red Stickles for the berries. I also put some modelling paste through the stencil in the hope that it might stay white but it didn't.  Never mind!

I made the figure using Tallulah Tripp and 3 of the beards for the skirt and one for the bodice.  I used glue and glitter.

I stamped the words from the Right Words set and stuck them on.

So there you are.  A finished tag.  And a challenge entry.

This morning I was reading Hels Sheridan's blog and found a challenge there using holly as a theme so I'm going to add it there as well.

Have a great day.  Thanks for popping in.
