On The Twelfth Day Of Christmas The Queen Gave To Me...

Mr. Stalone Under the Tree!!!!?!?!!? =) That's right!!! Mr. Stalone!!! He's one of our new fabulous images in the shoppe!!

This is my 12th and final holiday tag!!! It happens to be in Hanukkah themed colors but it's really a culmination of what my family believes in and that's FAITH. Above anything else...we have faith...and whatever interpretation you take from that is yours.
I used my Cricut to cut out the word Faith as my jumping off point for this final tag. I already had the background paper set and sewn. So I placed the word where I wanted it and adhered it down. I knew I wanted to use Mr. Stalone but also knew that he'd be too big and would cover part of the word or the word would cover part of him.
So...I colored him with my Copics and made his wings sheer and iridescent looking with Icicle Stickles.

I heat set the Stickles so they'd dry faster and I scanned my image in. I then resized it and printed it out. I used a pale green cardstock for his matte and stitched a border with black thread around him. He was now perfect for my tag. I added a little glittery brad beneath him to balance out the beautiful bird flying high above on the left hand upper side of the tag. This bird was also cut out using my Cricut, covered with silver ink, silver embossing powder and heat set. I used a pretty grey seed bead as his eye for some really nice dimension.
(I was thinking that secretly Mr. Stalone is having Faith that he'll get to capture that yummy looking bird!! ;) LOL!!

Anyway - I then doodled with my silver paint pen on the word Faith and added a few random blue self-adhesive rhinestones for some extra pop.

I do so hope you've enjoyed all of my holiday tags!!! I had SO much fun making them and I have to say I don't think I repeated one stamp on any of the tags!! That was my intention...I tried to use a different combo of stamps on each tag with no repeats.

Now I'm going to hang them all together in their proper order as a garland to hang up in my house for the rest of the holiday season!! Once I have that done and up (I need to figure out where to hang it!!) I'll post pictures.

Thanks again for visiting and have a great night!!
