Today is day 13 at Tracy McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. If you are a newbie like me, then read all about it here. I have been looking forward to the day when Neat and Tangled would be the guest as I had their new Fa La La Llama stamp set. I have been collecting a few sets with llamas and fell in love with this one because it tops the charts on the CUTE factor. So I was definitely inspired by Brianna Loefflebein's llama tag today! :)
For this tag, I backed a piece of red inked chipboard with natural colored burlap. I went around the edges with glitter Mod Podge to give it sparkle (also dry brushing some on the edges of the mats, stamped scarf, blanket on llama, gift and top of clothes pin). Remember my crafty shopping trip last week to get black and white gingham I was out of? Are you surprised that even more ended up in my shopping cart? I got the Christmas baker's twine and pretty red and white fibers too. Used them on top of today's tag for the finishing touch. Who says I don't use what I buy? (Except my hubby and he doesn't count....besides who listens to him anyway when crafty shopping!!! Wink!)
