Last Minute Christmas Tags

Here is a quick way to make some last minute Christmas tags. I really love the Lynne Perrella stamp sets and here I have used stamps from the sets below. You could use any of Lynne Perrella's sets as they can be deconstructed and reconstructed to suit your tag size.

First I stamped a variety of images on Ivory cardstock using Archival Ink olive and plum, for a traditional Christmas feel.

Then I cut the stamped images apart and fussy cut around them.

I cut my tags out of Ivory cardstock and using gold acrylic paint and a stencil brush, I stencilled through TCW stencil North Star

Now for the fun part! Reconstructing all the lovely images to create my own combination an each tag. I could have made many variations....

....I settled on eight designs....

..the collages were glued with gel medium.  I added some fine gold washi tape and  a few doodles with a gold gel pen.

I was very pleased with the finished result.

Until next time...Lynne
