One Layer Wednesday (OLW) #71 - Christmas Tags

Jennifer has issued the latest One Layer Wednesday challenge #71 - Tags  I started out with good One Layer intentions ... but it all went seriously wrong .. and I added a layer on them all!! 


These tags were actually a case from the Nov./Dec. Paper Crafts magazine ... if you turn to page ?? ... see those 3 halloween ... they are beautiful and I knew they would make great christmas tags too.  And I'd better clarify, these tags started out white .. they were embossed with clear embossing powder and then distress inks applied. Love that technique!!

Hope you are having a great Sunday.

So very pretty. I think the white sentiment really pops on the prints of the tags. Gorgeous!

The tags started out as white, were clear embossed, and distress ink sponged over top!! No pp cut in the making of these tags :)
