It's my day to post at the Get Inky! Stamps blog! I truly got ALL in the Christmas spirit to inspire you to enter the Get Inky! Challenge 10: Ribbons. Using the 2013 Holiday set I decorated a clear acrylic gift tag from Clear Scraps that can double as an ornament!! This amazing stamp set is available at the new Etsy store.

The tag comes covered in brown stickers that have to be peeled off before you start. I began by stamping the images and sentiment on the top with Stazon ink. My pads were a little dry so I outlined the images with my fav new tools - ultra fine tip Sharpie and Zig Photo signature pen! Don't judge! LOL.
Using various brush stix, I colored the hat with the red stazon ink. The white parts are colored with Stazon opaque white ink. The gingerbread man was colored in from the back of the tag with a brown sharpie. Outlining the tag in Krylon paint pen made it look a little more fancy. Love it! The embellishments are popped up on 3D glue dots for that extra oomph. I don't want this baby to get lost in the majesty of the Christmas tree!
Last steps were to add the double-sided cardstock to the back of the tag as well as the ribbon to hang the ornament and the ornamental merry Christmas ribbon. Here's a view of the back of the tag. I love how the pattern on the back matches the pine theme from the front.
I just love how this came out!! I look forward to seeing your creations in the challenge! Thanks for stopping by! Please share this post and pop over to the Get Inky! Stamps blog and leave me some love over there too! Thanks again!
