Burlap Tag

Svitlana's Tag
I've been wanting to use some burlap again--it's been ages.  When I saw Svitlana's tag for Day 17 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, I was inspired & here's what I came up with.  

I attached burlap to cardstock using a double sided adhesive sheet. Then I die cut it with Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles.  I painted the edges with Distress Paint picket fence & Distress Ink gathered twigs.  I tried to stamp a little snowflake with Liquid Applique colored with Liquid Pearls Ocean Blue.  That didn't work so I pressed a cardstock scrap into the Liquid Applique (which I had mixed on a piece of foil), heated it & die cut the little Impression Obsession snowflake several times. They were a bit too light, so I spritzed them with Tattered Angels Turquoise mist & attached them to the tag. 
I layered 3 IO snowflakes cut from cardstock, covered with Rock Candy Distress Glitter & spritzed with Cork Tattered Angels.  The Penny Black sentiment was stamped in gathered twigs & cut into a flag.  I lightly sponged it with the same ink & mounted the layered snowflake at one end with foam tape.  Finished off with pearls & the brown/cream ribbon.  I'm also entering these challenges:  Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas, Verve Rustic Winter, Happy Little Stampers Nov Christmas & Mixed Media Tag & The Playground.  Hope you're staying dry & warm. Dreary, wet & cold here, but we're expecting sunshine tomorrow which means another day of raking leaves--not my favorite thing--haha! Thanks for your visit--I know everyone is super busy.
