tuesday's challenges


The theme this thursday at Crazy Amigos is moon, and the theme at Created by hand is Christmas tags. I combined the challenges and used this moon santa stamp from Inka.

I've been admiring embossed backgrounds recently, but I really can't justify a cuttlebug (or whatever it is that your do them with). Then I remembered that I had these fiskars texture plates tucked away in a drawer, so I dug them out and voila! I think you'll be seeing alot more of them over the next few posts, now that they are out on my desk.

there is no ribbon on this tag, because it's too dark to take photos and my scanner doesn't like bulky things like ribbons.

  1. What a lovely tag. I'm with you on the embossing. I love the textured look but can't justify the major purchase. You have created the starry feel of this tag in your very own way.
