So I started out with a Manila colored tag, a Darice product that I picked up at Michael's. I put down some white gesso on the whole of the tag.
Next I painted it with two shades of green and yellow ochre. I blasted the tag with my heat tool then added some more of the acrylic paints. I really had no idea where I was going so let my muse take over with painting the whole tag with Golden iridescent gold paint. I liked the metallic look to the tag.
I had some old Christmas print craft paper so I fussy cut a poinsettia. I used a holly stencil that I used on a plain craft paper and using the same greens as the tag, then fussy cut them out and painted three holly berries too. I darkened the edges of the leaves and berries with Tim Holtz distress inks, pine needles and aged mahogany. Glued all down and I like it! Simple but nice for a holiday gift tag.
