Anything Goes Tag

Hi everyone.  Can you believe that it is only a week until Christmas Eve!  Oohhhhhhhhhh!!  Can't wait!

Meanwhile though today is the start of a brand new challenge over at The Stamp Man's Challenge Blog and the theme this time around is Anything Goes Tag.  This is what I came up with for this challenge using another of my Christmas stamp sheets - A Winter's Bouquet.  I started by stamping the holly bouquet in black Memento and coloured it with Copic markers. I then embossed around the holly bouquet using the Papermania snowflake embossing folder.  The actual tag was cut using a Labels 10 Nestabilities die and embossed with the snowflake folder before lightly swiping a Moonlight White Brilliance inkpad over it.

Here's a closer look at the colouring for you!  As you can see the holly leaves were simply block coloured using two shades of blue/green markers but the bow was shaded using 3 shades of red then lots of glitter glue was applied over the top.
