12 Tags of Christmas - {day 3}

Here's my tag for {day 3} and my first "proper go" at using my new alcohol inks but as I only have mostly "lights" my tag ended up being pastel and non-Christmassy colours:

Well, as I said, all the alcohol inks were lights so I followed a pastel theme. Instead of using a white tag and using black soot distress ink on the edge I just cut a black tag. The stamps (both the flourish and Santa) are Fancy Pants.Instead of twine I wrapped some pink craft cord around my tag and then attached some metal words that I tinted with alcohol ink. Instead of the rivets I used vintage glass buttons.

Materials used: Papermill card, glossy white card, alcohol inks, Fancy Pants Blissful Season stamps, black Versafine ink, Making Memories metal eyelet words, pink craft cord, vintage glass buttons, Autumn Leaves ribbon.
