I do love a cute penguin! He's stamped in black and embossed, while the tag itself is embossed in silver. I added a little bit of blue sponging to the tag base before popping him on. The lights and hat trim have rock candy Stickles added — I did not expect it to make the marker run, but it did a little bit! I can live with it since it's "only a tag". 😉 I also added a bit to my fingers and added it to the ends of the twine... most metallic twines seem to fray if you look at them, don't they?
I also played along in the current Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge, where this week's Muse is Chriss Blagrave, with this card:
It took me a while to find my way into this card. I broke it down into some of its components... patterned paper as a main element, white silhouette images, large sentiment. And that led me to this:
I've had this patterned paper quite a while, and thought it would make a perfect wintry night sky! I swapped out the houses on Chriss's card for trees, and added a dry-embossed strip of cardstock below but no ribbon. No gold on my card either, with a white sentiment and no ribbon. (Or dots on my trees.)
Tomorrow life may get in the way... but I'll do my best to get a tag done!
