STAMPlorations Inspiration #46
Time for another tag, I think. When I was prepping for my guest design spot at Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas, I prepped an extra tag by tearing some of the top layer off and smearing it with a light coating of gesso.
So today I covered it with Brushed Pewter Distress Paint, which dries to a lovely sheen, then stamped the bell from Holiday Sketches: Christmas Bells, coloured it in with Distress Inks, cut it out and added Wink of Stella, then took the clappers out of two metal bell charms and adhered them to the cut-out bells. I added some diecut 'greenery' which I'd coated with Wink of Stella, then punched a hole and added some pewter-coloured ribbon. Oh, and some Icicle Stickles to the centre of the poinsettia (after the top photo was taken).
I'm adding my tag to Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas,
Inkspirational - Anything Goes with Silver (ok, technically, it's Brushed Pewter on the tag base, Iced Spruce on the bells, and metal for the clappers, but they're all in the spirit of silver :) )

and Happy Little Stampers newest challenge, Mixed Media Challenge, which is also a Tag. (The challenge badge is the same as the one above.)
