Visible Image Inspiration~Vintage Tag~Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

Happy Sunday!

Welcome September! The weather is just starting to change, finally a bit cooler here and just a teeny bit crisp at night. Fall is just around the corner, wow!

More than enough time to get started on Holiday play projects, Fall is so fun for so many occassions to celebrate. Today I want to share an art tag I made for Visible Image stamps using the awesome Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree stamp set, new for 2015.

I went all vintagy-rustic tones using DecoArt Crackle, Decoupage Paper medium, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Distress Spray ink and various alcohol inks.

The complete tag, above.

The Distress Spray made a nice shimmer on the trees. It is stamped using Fern Green Archival ink.

I used DecoArt Crackle medium on top of some papers I had layered for the bottom of the tag using Decoupage Paper medium. 

I added some alcohol inks to highlight the cracks once dry. The tag is edged with Potting Soil Archival Ink.
