Twelve Tags of Christmas with Viva Las Vegastamps! - Day #9

It's Day #9 and three days to go!!!
Twelve Tags of Christmas with
Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team!!!

Myself along with members of the Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team
will each be making tags every day December 1st thru 12th,
all using the same plate of stamps

Thanks for stopping by! To get back to the top of the hop,

Here is my creation for today....

Detail of center circle. "Santa on stool" from plate 1363.
Again my favorite "Snoozin' Elf" from plate 1363.
This tag is fun and festive using stamps from plate 1363 and Christmas Alphabet #7560 from Viva Las Vegastamps! I had a piece of a holiday My Minds Eyes patterned paper with small wreaths everywhere and I wanted to do something circular with the Santa heads. So, I stamped the two Santa heads within the wreaths and cut out. Any parts overlapping wreath were covered up by cutting out pieces of another wreath and gluing on top. I colored faces and elf in with watercolor technique using Marvy markers and a water brush. The background of my tag is a leftover scrap of hologram wrapping paper {you know - that stash we all have leftover after all the gifts are wrapped...I admit I am guilty}. The letters are stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. This looks so sweet! To finish off Santa wreaths, I mounted them to rimmed tags that I colored the edges gold with a permanent marker. This was a fun idea I sketched at work yesterday and I'm so pleased with how it turned out. See you tomorrow : )
