International Art and Soul Challenge 20

The challenge at International Art and Soul this fortnight, is to use a charm or a tag.

And I'm continuing in my efforts to get a few Christmas cards together with this one:


I started with some glossy card which I brayered using a couple of shades of Distress Ink: Scattered Straw and Wild Honey. Then, I attached a a Special Touch mask and added some green shades using Versacolor ink. Finally, I added the words, using a stamp from a Sweet Dixie set. 

In the foreground, I die cut a tree using a Sizzix die - three times in white and one in a glittery gold card, and stuck them together to make a more robust embellishment. I cut a mat using a Spellbinders die, and a tag using, I think, an old XCut die. The sentiment there came from a Woodware set.

I hope you can join us this time!
