12 Tags of Christmas - Day 10

I managed to squeeze in one more tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a feminine twist. This tag was inspired by Carly's cute tag on day 10.

I was amazed at how fast this one came together and I love how it turned out. My creation also fits the current challenge at Little Tangles, which is to create a tag.
Materials used:
Cardstock: Smooth Bristol
Tag die: Studio Calico
Ink: Distress Inks (evergreen bow, tumbled glass, bundled sage, 
fossilized amber), Memento black
Stamps: Inkadinkado (trees), Lawn Fawn (fox), sentiment (SSS)
Colouring medium: Promarkers
Other: Clear Wink of Stella, Hemptique Metallic Classic cord

The day after I had created the tag, I turned it into a card, so that I could send it as a Christmas card. I started by reattaching my twine at the top of the tag. I did some more splattering on my Rustic cream card base (Papertrey Ink) using Fossilized amber distress ink mixed with a litte perfect pearls to create my own gold splatter. I shaped a length Hemptique cord using multi medium matte and stuck in into place by adhering my tag over it using pieces of foam tape.
