Holiday Grunge Tag

Hello and Happy Wednesday!  Dawn Rene here to share a holiday grunge tag with you.

The focal point of the tag is the Christmas Tidings stamp from The Rubber Cafe'.

Christmas Tag - TRC Designs By Dawn Rene

The base of the tag is a piece of paper from Authentique - their really nice thick, textured paper - from the Peaceful collection that had words on it. I brushed gesso on top of the paper, and stamped the Christmas Tidings stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used gelatos and a lot of distressing to color in the image giving it that grungy look and feel. I just love the texture the gesso gives my final image.

Final touches were added to the image with Stamper's Big White Pen and a black marker, and the top of the tag is finished off with an eylet, fibers, and ribbon.  For the bottom of the tag I adorned it with a button, twine and the Season's Greeting 2 sentiment stamp.

Here is a close up!

With the holidays fast approaching, I hope you'll give this a try. As a tag it will dress up any package or it can be given as a bookmark for that special reader on your list.
