Tag, You're It!--Oh, Christmas Tree

Oh, Christmas Tree, Tag, 2.375" x 4.75"
© 2008 Fannie Narte

The tag's background was painted with a technique using shaving cream and spray paint. The painted background was stamped with musical notes using black ink. Text was adhered with gel medium, and a polymer clay Christmas Tree is attached to the card with a bead. To finish off the piece, a green tassel was secured to the top.

Oh, Christmas Tree is my submission for Tag, You're It!.

Thanks for looking.
Fannie

How beautiful Fannie! I love the design and feel of this piece, it looks incredibly nostalgic. I missed visiting your blog while we were away... it seems like I have missed so much. Thanks for sharing.

Welcome Home, Lisa! Sounds like you enjoyed your family vacation. Did you take home some fairy dust magic? ;-D

Your tag looks great. I'm thinking Christmas is in the air. Is this one of the tags that you made awhile back with FAT?

What a gorgeous tag Fannie! Shaving cream and spray paint? I've heard of shaving cream and reinkers, but not spray paint. I'd love to hear more about that.
