Christmas Tags are SO FUN to create! Tags of any kind-but especially Christmas ones.
 
I used an dry embossing folder-rub your inkpad on the low side before you run your white cardstock through. The background is what you get! I love this simple technique.

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly.
