I stamped the angel and colored her with copics and pencil. Since the image was way too large, I scanned my artwork, then created the fade around the image. I printed on my blank tag. The flourishes were stamped in Versamark and clear embossed. The tag was sponged working the color darker near the edges. A small music background stamp was used randomly in open spaces. A few stitches were added along with a few nail heads. This one was fun to do!

WOW ... that angel image is gorgeous Nancy. So clever to scan and print it onto the tag. I need to try that!! What a great way to use a special image on more than one card. Love how it fades into your tag. So beautiful with the flourishes and sponged background ... very vintage looking. Love the added special touch of stitches. Thanks again for joining my Twelve Tags of Christmas event! xx

Another great design, and your coloring on the angel is terrific. I love the vintage appeal of the image, that your coloring has emphasized. Looks perfectly at home on this beautifully done tag. The golden shade was so appropriate to create the background glow for the angel's coloration. TFS

Nancy, the detail is so beautiful from the swirls, the stitching and the tiny little nail heads. My hat goes off to you on the re-sizing of the image and printing it on the tag. My printer doesn't like my card :)

Anything I say here would be a repetition of previous comments. This is so lovely; every detail so well thought out and beautifully done. The nailheads accenting the flourishes was a super finishing touch,
