sparkling sophistication !!

stamps: festive decorations and simply sophisticated from lili of the valley
ink: memento (tuxedo black), promarkers and copic spica glitter pens
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock and black cardstock
other: ornate #3 framelits dies from sizzix, simply gorjuss bakers twine and black organza ribbon
I made this tag as a variation on the one I did (below). this time I stamped the whole image to fit inside this curved shape, including a sentiment at the top. I kept the colouring minimal, just highlighting the detail using grey tones in promarkers, using glitter to for extra emphasis. I added some coordinating twine and a black organza ribbon to the top and secured beneath. this was then matted onto a piece of black, die cut using the next sized shape. overall I think it gives a more sophisticated, grown up take on the Christmas tag.
'include a sentiment'
