Christmas is definitely upon us and this week at Gingersnap Creations is was GC131 Random Redhead Challenge on Candelabras, Chandeliers and Candles.
So this was the perfect theme for a Christmas tag and the perfect way to use my Halloween Alterations Die, Candlelight Fright, in a different way.
I inked my tag with Barn Door and then clear embossed it all over with a baroque style design. This month we are very fortunate to be sponsored by Penny Wise Arts who stock a massive range of beads and sparkles for crafters so I used their black glass micro beads over glossy accents to bring out the swirls in my embossed background.
I painted my candelabra with crackle paint and used beadazzles for my flames.
The numbers are cut from Ranger's Foil Tape which was embossed using an embossing folder. The foliage was cut using Festive Greenery alterations die and distressed with the damask embossing folder. I cut the snowflake in acetate and used a Star Dust stickle around the edge.
A little bead trim and some ribbons completed my tag - all ready for the challenge and for Christmas.
Hope you and your families all have a very Merry Festive Time. xx
