ScrapBerry's December Christmas Challenge ~ Vintage Mixed Media Tag

It's a Christmas Challenge at ScrapBerry's, and the design team has been busy creating projects to inspire you as you join along. Here's my vintage mixed media tag featuring the gorgeous Winter Joy Collection. Stop on over at the ScrapBerry's blog to see what the rest of the team has created HERE.

On the flowers, I brushed gold Glimmer Spray across the edges of the petals as well as brushing randomly with glue to adhere chunky glitter. The ScrapBerry's Trumpet Charm is a perfect Christmas  trinket to tuck into the cluster. 

The Winter Joy Cards sheet included this sweet sentiment along with the vintage girl tag image. I just adore all the options the gorgeous image sheets add to my projects!! The Scrapberry's Pearl Sticker Applique is a perfect touch. It is cut into two pieces to stretch across both sides of the cluster.

I die cut this doily from Kraft cardstock as well as the leaves around the cluster. I've added texture by adhering Art Stones and glitter around the cluster and to the center of the die cut doily. To add a bit of shimmer, I brushed the Art Stones with Gold Glimmer Spray. For a wintry feel, I've spattered white drawing ink across the background layer as well as dry brushing most of the elements randomly with white gesso.

If you scroll up to the project photo at the beginning of the post, you can view the beautiful bow tied with ScrapBerry's White Shabby Ribbon and Wax String.
