A Tag and a Crimbo card

Well it's been beautiful sunny weather down here in the South East, hope you've all had good weather too.
The tag was to answer a ? I'd asked earlier about whether a certain technique would work with Pan Pastels, and yes it does! Don't know the name of the technique? But it's where you lay colour down then stamp over it with versamark and lift the colour! So I made a tag with black card and masked a thin edge with some low tack tape, and splodged on yellow hansa, diarylide yellow, permanent red and white pan pastels, lightly blended, then stamped with versamark, using two Kanban stamp that came as a set with an elegant ladies head, sprayed with some very cheap hairspray, added 3 black gems, punched a hole added a gold star shaped eyelet and some orangey yellow ribbon and viola. Was an experiment but think it came out ok? What ya think?
Xmas card, 8x8 scalloped edge white card base, I used paper from the Holly jolly 12x12 paper set, I used the reverse side to make the poinsettia's, spellbinders die, used two ribbons to make a bow and added a button and two hat pins, a bit of bling by way of swirly black gems, and a white glittery peel off, I don't like using peel offs but sometimes they are just the job. Thank you for taking the time to look. Xxx

Thought I'd come back and make another comment.....I mis-read your post, and thought you'd pp'd the tag, then stamped in black. This was a clever technique, I would never have thought of doing it xx
