Festive Tag

Hello and good evening
What a week i have had this is the first time i have
posted anything since last Saturday, I am glad to
be back home,Just made a large tag the first thing i made
since last week and i got the inspiration for this tag from this
 months Crafts Beautiful magazine as i already had this set of
stamps and never got round to using them this just gave me the perfect
chance to try them out.
I used distress inks to cover the tag and embossed
the script, the music stamp is from a set of christmas
stamps from last year which i stamped on the corners of the
tag, I stamped  the music script and image onto white card
 and cut out, coloured the hat in distress ink and added some 
rock candy distress stickles to his hat,also added a little
 colour to the face but it does'tn show up on the picture
 I used vintage photo ink to ink the edges of the music script
  and added some screw brads  I also added a wooden reindeer.

Thanks for visiting.
