12 Tags of Christmas Day 12

The last tag is up at Ellen Hutson's The Classroom and it is by none other than Ellen Hutson herself!

Ellen Tag 12

Ellen uses some amazing products and techniques on her tag which I sadly do not have those products to achieve her look, so improvising once again! 

Not very happy with the results on this one :(.  Painted the tag with Distress Paint and misted to try to get a more gradient look then added some Distress Stain to try to get a more turquoise color like Ellen's - fail!  Stippled on some Tarnished Brass Distress Stain and dribbled on some Pearl Glimmer Mist.  Die cut the ornament from the tag and stamped the pine boughs with Memento Rose Bud.  Had to use vellum behind the die cut and stamped the scalloped borders in white and heat embossed then added Distress Stains trying for the faded out look.  Added a strip of ScorTape and rose colored glitter, then adhered to back of ornament opening.  The pine branch was found in my Christmas stash.  It was silver so used WPlus9 white ink, heat set, inked the raised areas with Memento Rose Bud then lightly added some Stickles in gold.
Thanks for taking a look!
