Nordic Christmas Sweater & Sleigh Silhouette Altered Tag

tag 1

 I had such a great time making with my first nordic background tag HERE.  Linda's Christmas knit was such an inspiration to me.  I came across this awesome stamp on clearance for $4 and just had to get it!  Later that week I saw this lady in a grey and cream sweater and I just knew I had to recreate it into a tag!  I decided this adorable sleigh silhouette would be the perfect focal point.

I used Weathered Wood, Frayed Burlap, and Pumice Stone Distress inks to create my background.  The focal image and text was stamped with Vivid Cobblestone.  I layered an industrious sticker over the bottom seam and tore the top.

I stamped this JOY sentiment by Paperbag Studios and embossed it twice with grey UTEE.  I sponged a bit of black around the edges to make it look like metal.

tag 4

 For the topper, I layered with some Tim Holtz Sizzix greenery, some charcoal twine, and a jingle bell.  I was inspired by THIS pin.

tag 5

 I used some mini alphas to stamp the text onto a scrap.  I added some pom pom fringe and then stitched around the edges.  I'd have to say this is my favorite tag so far, even though it is not bright or traditional.  I just love the wintry feel of it!  Linda has such an amazing selection of Christmas items and is running a flash sale on Tim Holtz products at her shop, The Funkie Junkie Boutique, now through the 10/31!
