The 12 Tags of Christmas, Day 3



Love the background technique on today's tag.....alcohol ink stripes!  Here's what Tim made:

What great tags, and so far, this was the easiest.  I had an 8am appointment, and managed to get some backgrounds done before I left the house:


In the true spirit of being a copy cat, I decided to make two tags also.  I used some really nice SU tree stamps for the first one, and the background with the light greens:


I didn't have any jute, but think the twill works nicely too.

For the Santa tag, I went with the traditional red and green:


I like the way the lace looks, so used that in place of my non-existent jute.  Haven't decided what to do with the other two backgrounds, but they'll show up somewhere.

Bring on Tag 4!
