A very quick & easy tag tutorial.....

Hi everyone, Barbara here again, with a very easy tag tutorial.....
While doing some 'winter' themed projects for the November challenge, I unearthed some stamps I hadn't used for a while....CHRISTMAS WREATH SET

I have lots of Oak House Studio white tags, but typically couldn't find them for this project, so had to cut some....
1)  I stamped the branches using Green Oak inkpad, and the sentiment using black inkpad.



 2) Using Spring Green inkpad I stamped the cluster of holly leaves from the Christmas Wreath set, randomly over the branches.


3) I then mixed some Green Oak inkpad with Peridot acrylic ink together to make a darker shade, and over-stamped with a single holly leaf.


 4) I painted in a few holly berries with Valentine Red inkpad and an aquabrush.
When they were dry, I dotted 'Glossy Accents' over the berries, to give them a bit of shine.



5) A bit of red metallic cord, and done!









I liked the effect so much, I made a couple of cards to match....
Well, that's all for now, catch you soon,
Barbara.....
Don't forget to get your entry into the Winter Challenge....
