Tag Swap

I was so excited to join my very first Christmas Tag Swap hosted by Kate, aka celestial_stamper, at Splitcoaststampers.

This is what I created using SU!'s Sketch It stamp set. With this stamp set you can create either a sunflower or some kind of wreath...obviously I chose to make a Christmas wreath. I used a variety of red buttons from my bottomless button jar.
For the background I inked my Tres Chic background stamp with VersaMark pad. I hope you can see it...
Last year I had bought SU!'s shimmer ink, which I mist all over the tag. The shimmer ink I used is called Champagne Mist. For the berries I used Cranberry Crisp and gold ink. I sponged the edge of the tag with Close to Cocoa ink. I tied the ribbon with hemp cord, and last but not least I punched the border with the Eyelet Border punch.
I think it gives it a sort of vintage look.
