Sparkling Christmas Tag

I made a Christmas tag with the smaller stamps which come with the Tina's Sparkling Christmas Centrepiece stamp set.  I went for a grungy look, but I wish I'd stuck with clean and simple.
Use the largest nested dome tag die to cut a piece from the A4 watercolour pad.
Stamp the Sparkling Christmas Sentiment along the side in black ink and emboss using holographic powder.
Add the smaller stamps from the set in the same manner, building up a background.

Using mica paints and a large water brush, paint the holly leaves and candles. Spritz the tag with water to make the mica paint run.
Keep adding paint, spritzing and allowing to drip until happier with the effect. Dry thoroughly.  Go back over the candles and holly leaves with watercolour ink.
To finish, add ribbons in the same colours through the hole at the top of the tag.

It would be clean and simple for me as well, not too good with the grungy look. It does look lovely though. X
