Part of the problem was my camera ran out of battery power just as I was about to take the photos and I discovered we only had three AA batteries left so there was a mad scrabble to fine a fourth battery that would work, hence me missing the CC&S cutoff time, serves my own right for leaving it so late lol, but it's an ill wind that blows no one any good and it got me motivated to add to my Christmas stash.
I laid the tag into this ink several times until I was happy with the coverage drying between each laying. Last for this section I slapped some Distress Oxide Evergreen Bough down, sprayed it and then laid the tag back into this ink. Once the tag was dry I gave it a light spritz with home made glimmer mist.
I coloured the little penguin fussy cut and then mounted him on some craft foam and added him to the tag, I then added the embellishments and mounted the whole thing onto more craft foam.
I worked out where I wanted the greeting, stamped it and then over stamped with watermark and clear heat embossed it, added the ribbon and attached the tag to the card base and there you have it.
