Christmas Tags for Tracey and Loll and Muse CV #71

I was really hoping to get more tags made for the wonderful challenges that Tracey (25 Days of Christmas Tags) and Loll ( 12 Tags of Christmas) have but I've had difficulty keeping up.  I do have two tags today however.
Tracey's tags on Day 16 featured the designers from Muse Christmas Visions and the theme was to use vellum.
I cut one tag from vellum and backed it with a plain white one.  The mistletoe was stamped in dark green and clear heat embossed before coloring on the back with Zigs.  A little sentiment tag from MCS and some green ribbon finish it off.

Loll's challenge is mixed media and I was inspired by so many of her and her friends wonderful creations.
I smooshed Distress Ink on the front of my tag and when it was dry I stenciled the holly by masking off certain areas.  I used my Inktense Pencils to add some shading and details.  So that's stamping, watercoloring, stenciling and coloring, all on one little tag.

If I get my Thanksgiving cards ready to mail I may get time to make a couple more tags that I have ideas for.  That and watching more Hallmark movies.

Thanks for dropping by.
