25 Days of Christmas Tags: Day 20


Day 20! Yep, it's Day 20 of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. Today Waffle Flower is our guest and sponsor. 


Although I've already done one stocking tag, I decided to make another, but made sure I did it differently... 


This stocking is fun, as the stripes are a separate stamp, so you can make the outline and the stripes different colours. It also has the separate fluffy cuff — and although I know better, I didn't stamp it in waterproof ink, but managed to keep the bleeding to a minimum when I added Stickles. Sigh. On the tag base, I used some watercolour powder... notice in this case, I was wise enough to keep the water above the sentiment. 
There is fine inspiration over on Tracey's blog today, so be sure to check it out. You can be in the running to win a prize for commenting and/or making tags, so why not join us? 

Supplies: Strathmore watercolour paper, Waffleflower Stocking stamps & dies, Altenew ruby & evergreen inks, Magenta Nuance grass green watercolour powder, MFT pierced tag die, frosted lace Stickles, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, Offray ribbon, Hemptique cord, small hole punch, foam tape

Cute tag! I appreciate you mentioning forgetting to use watercolor friendly ink Comforting knowing that I'm not the only one ❤️ I have to keep reminding myself that perfection isn't the goal. (Although it would nice every once in a while)🙂
