2 Tags For Christmas Tree

I have put 2 tags on this post today for Challenges

In my bedroom I have a small Christmas tree that I usually decorate in natural colors and things.  I am making my own tags this year for the tree.

This is the base template I used kraft card stock and then put craft paper which is thinner like a paper bag onto the base.  The top has tissue paper on it.  The kraft paper was crunched up and then laid out and lightly inked with Brushed Corduroy.

Here is a close up of the Kraft paper.  Under the paper I used Tim Hotz's tape, it is printed with images and words and is like masking tape, I just pleated it and made a edge all around the star.

Here is the tag finished

Tilda is colored with Distressed Inks and I used cheesecloth from my apple cider herb blend, perfect color, to put underneath her.  I sprinkled snow and wooden snowflakes around.

Close up of the tissue paper top tag area, I scrunched tissue paper and glued it on.  To the left the cheesecloth had a natural rolled curve that I thought made it look like a sack so I tied it with Jute and a bow.  I stickled the word wish just a bit. 

Here is Tilda up close, she is one of my favorites

You can see the dimension of the tag

Here is a metallic tag using Tim Holtz Distressed Metalic Stains. I Distressed Inked Tilda a small amount of stickle and taped her onto a metal rusty heart.  The background has a black embossed set of Angel Wings and then liquid pearls all around.  The black edges are cut from Tim Holtz vintage lace die.  I embossed a wooden snowflake and star on here too.

The Merry Christmas sign is stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder and then I smeared the Metalic stain onto it and wiped off for a vintage look.  This tag in interactive although it is hard to see but Tilda on the heart moves, shakes as I made a spiral piece from floral wire and attached it to both ends.  It works and makes her move.

My first tag I would like to enter into the following challenge

The 2nd tag I would like to enter in the following challenge

I hope you all have a wonderful day!
