Christmas Vintage Tags

A couple weeks ago I went to a scrapbooking retreat in the mountains.  I still wasn't feeling well, so my mojo was also MIA! My friend got me started on a tag using some of her Tim Holtz stamps (blueprints) and her Distress inks.  AND  I went CRAZY! They were so fun...messy, but FUN!!!! 

I used manila tags that I bought AGES ago thinking I could keep up with the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas, but I couldn't! Vintage is SO out of my comfort zone, it freaks me out...literally freaks me out!!!! LOL   I stamped the image on the tag, then used distress inks (2 or 3 colours) to smudge around the image.  Then I stamped on the background image (either snowflakes or leaves), distressed the edges with my TH distresser tool, and then inked them.  I coloured the images and the ribbon with my TH distress inks.  THEN I spritzed them with some pearly spray that my friend had (I told you - I used EVERYTHING of hers except the tags! LOL)  These look sooooo much nicer in person, they are shimmery!  VERY cool!!!!

I have them up for sale in my Etsy shop IF you are interested!!!! 

 Here are the tags I made: 

I am entering this into the following challenges:
 ADDICTED TO STAMPS challenge which is Tags (& you have to use a stamp, which I did!),
CRAFTY EMBELLIES which is Vintage Shabby Chic with altered art (I THINK this fits there),
 Robyn's Fetish which is Vintage,
STAMPING SENSATIONS which is Traditional Christmas,

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you love my tags!!!!  I know I do!!!!
