This is my second tag for Loll's super fun blog event, Twelve Tags of Christmas. This tag was inspired by the colours of Loll's guest designer, Bonnie - day 7 tag.
This tag was made using Izinks from a mini mister - 2 drops of Izink into a mini mister, 3/4 fill with water, it is like a pretty glimmer mist but not as intense. I sprayed on blue and silver. I also wiped a babywipe that had the remains of purple distress ink over the card. In real life this card is very shimmery. To give the blue a bit more ompff I sponged on some distress ink.
The images were stamped on using Ranger Archival ink. The silver line to the ornament was made with silver stickles. Thank you for looking. Loll's fun event can be seen here .
EDIT: In answer to Nancy's question - yes the trumpeting angel surrounded by snowflakes is one acrylic stamp - LOL Nancy, I'm not that clever. The stamp set is a clear set bu Inkadinkado called Xmas Silver Clear set. If you think angel is gorgeous, wait until you see the reindeer and the word Christmas. The set also comes with the 'noel' ornament shown here and a holly sprig (I used that on the other tag) It was about $10US. The 2 partial snowflakes on the left are from Stamp-It.

Oh wow!!! This is gorgeous!!! That angel was among the first stamps I purchased. I was never truly happy with my results but this is stunning. I need to get mine out and ink it up again. Your tag is amazing.

I too have this angel and it has never looked so beautiful! Your tag ROCKS! I always love your hand drawn doodling around a border. I can only imagine how shimmeryingly (I just made up that word) beautiful it looks IRL!
