5 Gold Rings!

  Good evening Lovelies! Well it's certainly been cold today! Beautiful sunshine though! Have you got your decs up yet? We're doing ours tomorrow hopefully, hubby is off work until Thursday so he can get up in that loft! 
Tonight I have made a little tag for the SplodgeAway challenge, http://www.splodgeaway.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/3rd-splodgeaway-monthly-challenge-12.html the theme is 12 days of Christmas, now I struggled with this as I didn't have anything I could think of to use, then I thought of 5 go-ld ringgggggs la la la la lol jump rings sitting in a bag for a long time not getting used!
So I used craft card and cut a tag 3.5 x 5.5 inch and rounded corners and punched a hole, I inked the edges using my SplodgeAway mat and vintage photo DI and heat dried then stamped with a music stamp with walnut stain DI all over to create a background and lightly brushed with irredescent mica powder to create a subtle shimmer, I then mixed 2 greens of distress stains and some maimeri texture paste together and using part of the Holly SplodgeAway mask, just before it was completely dry I added some red gems for berries, randomly stuck on the jump rings added the sentiment and a lovely velvet ribbon and gold bells, voila! Thank you for taking a look today xx
