Yes December 1st - the festive season is upon us so I suppose my make had best be festive.  I have been making alot of cards lately and need a break from them so altered a giant tag instead for our new monthly challenge for December over at Altered Eclectics.  I didn't really know where I was actually going with this but I sure know whee I ended up lol.  I am just going to list everything  I used otherwise I will be here all night.

Black paint for back of tag

modelling paste with brickwork stencil and a small cherub metal stencil
more panpastels sealed
Inka golds used - purple/pink/green and turquoise - quite a mixture
Tim Holtz bauble die using corrugated cardboard to hang from my branches
TH mini tree die using corrugated cardboard
Bauble painted using pink and purple inka gold over top
Tree painted green inka gold over top
red chiffon ribbon to hang baubles
2 pieces of my old xmas tree - hole pierced into tag and branches stuck into the holes for 3d effect

Ribbons from my stash
cheap glittery snowflake from a pound shop painted pink and purple then inka gold over top
