Vintage Veranda Challenge


I made these 12 Days of Christmas Tags for Sarah's challenge at Vintage Veranda which was to create some gift tags for our Christmas packages. I used an old stamp set from Rubber Stampede of the 12 Days of Christmas.
I created the background by applying distress inks to craft paper and then spraying it slightly with water. I then picked up the ink with my tag.
The images were colored with Copic markers which worked very well with thevintage look.

I can see these a whole lot better here! Up close and personal! These really came out nicely and I love that To and From stamp. Very classy.
