Christmas Tag for A Vintage Journey

I like months with five Fridays as it means we get a TAG FRIDAY over at A Vintage Journey. Here is my tag this month. I recently purchased Ground Expresso distress ink so had a good play with mixing the range of browns using the wrinkle free technique - I used tea dye, ground expresso and vintage photo inks here. 
I added some more ink to the based with stamping the snowflakes and to the top layer through a layering stencil.
 I die cut some stacked snowflakes and gave them a coat of paint before edging with a little archival ink. I punched and embossed a circle for my bauble.
 I might make this into a card for someone now.
I am looking forward to seeing what the rest of the team have created over at A Vintage Journey - hope to see you there!
Nikki
