Day 12 of Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags 2023" challenge

This is my Day 12 tag of Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags 2023" challenge - the half way point.  As you may have notices, I am loving making these tags.

Water colour card was used for the base of this tag.  I used three shades of Distress Oxide Inks (Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Uncharted Mariner) on the Sweet Poppy "Large and Small Spruce" Stamp, then spritzed the stamp then stamped it on to the card.  I repeated the process three times for each tree, drying it with a heat gun each time.

Once dry, I went around the edge with "Shaded Lilac" Distress Oxide Ink, edging the tag in "Wilted Violet" Distress Oxide Ink.  I created the landscape/grounded the trees using the same ink.

I used "Prize Ribbon" Distress Oxide ink to add splatters to the surface of the tag.

Next I stamped the Simon Says Stamp sentiment, part of their "Tiny Words - Christmas" stamp set, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

Finally I coloured some card with "Wilted Violet" Distress Oxide Ink and used a punch to make a hole reinforcer and stuck it into position before mounting the tag on co-ordinating card.
