Sleigh Ride Mixed Media Tag By Annmarie Colbert

Hello everyone, its’ Annmarie here to share this fun mixed media tag I created.

I created this tag with the dies pictured below:

To create the first layer of the background I took the Elegant Flake die and layered it on my gelli plate in random places, I then applied red acrylic paint and applied my cardstock to the gelli plate and removed. The second layer, I took white acrylic paint and took some punchanella and randomly applied it on the gelli plate in different directions. The third layer of the background I mixed some crackle paste with some green acrylic paint and applied to the cardstock using a holly stencil.
I then cut the sleigh out in silver, gold and white cardstock. Using the white cardstock as the base, I cut the different parts of the sleigh away on the silver and gold and applied them to the white card stock using some glue. The ribbons on the packages are color in with a PITT pen.
 The tree is a left over chipboard piece from an old collection that I covered in some music paper and inked with some distress ink.

 For the top of the tag, I created a bow out of some seam binding that I died with some distress ink. I added a #25 bingo piece. To finish off the top I cut out the Elegant Holly die and colored with some distress ink. I also stamped the holly with a scrip stamp to give the look of more texture. I applied the holly branches under the bow to give the appearance of the holly hanging down.
