Mini Christmas Tags, Poinsettia, Female

I had so much fun making a mini tag for Day 9 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags that I immediately decided to make two more.

Want to see?




Here's a picture of just one for a slighly closer look...




Once again I was very heavily influenced by one of Tracey's Guest Designers for the day.
Take a look at all those lovely greens, reds and hints of black with just a touch of sparkle that Amy has used.
Mine's a more rustic version and I've dropped the sentiment, but other than that all those elements are there to be seen.




I'd forgotten how much I loved making small, intricate things until this challenge kicked off again for this year.  It really is far more like play time for me to work on a tiny project than it is to work on a 'normal' sized card.  I guess that's why I love making tags so much...

(I have a feeling that those tiny, small 9cm and 10cm cards that I started off making will be back in for me this coming year.
I think I should concentrate on making what I enjoy)...




Supplies Used:

Dies:
Newton's Nook 'Tags Times Two'
Memory Box 'Fanciful Poinsettia'

Punch:
Martha Stewart 'Branch'

Ink:
Holtz/Distress 'Peeled Paint'

Other:
Paper Tearing Ruler
Gem - Black
Natural Twine
Patterned Paper



As always, thank you so much for stopping by...

  1. Yep - I'm in total agreement with you - because I'm ALL for making and doing things that you enjoy. Do MORE of what make you HAPPY is a good motto to live by don't you think?

    Loving your sweet little tags.

      What do you do with all of your canvas works?
