Vintage Santa Tag

***This tag was selected a Featured Artist on the Happy Holidays Mixed Media Color Challenge***

It's Terrific Tuesday!!!
I just wanted to share Christmas Mixed Media tag that I have made!

 I started with a large and a small manilla tag. I stamped my craft sheet with Barn Door and Peeled Paint Distress inks. I misted the ink with water and then dragged the tags thru the wet inks. I then edged the tags with Frayed Burlap Distress ink. I stamped (Santa's Wish-Stamper's Anonymous) the background with black Archival ink.
After I stamped the Santa, I colored him with some Distress Barn Door, Peeled Paint and Picket Fence markers. I thought this made the Santa really stand out.
The red poinsettias were made with my Silouhette Portrait machine. And I finished it off with some seam binding stained with Barn Door Distress ink and a gold cord!

The inks and markers that are available in the 7Kids College Fund store are listed below!

There is still time to join our  Anything Goes Challenge ! 

Thanks for stopping by!

I am also linking this to my good friends's Mona & Sue's current challenge
