Grunge Christmas Tag @ Visible Image


Good morning beautiful people :) 
Saturday has rolled around once again!

So that means it is time to share some
Visible Image! 
{love} with you! 
*happy happy joy joy* 

 There has been some great inky messy fun in the craftroom this week! 
And with Christmas just right around the corner, today I thought I would try to inspire you with a grunge-y Christmas tag using Visible Image stamps!
Lots of Visible Image goodness used here today! We have -
Bronte Border in the background, stamped in Archival Ink - Siena
Tree Trio - The largest tree used, stamped in Siena again.  
Vintage Season's Greeting - Stamped in TH Forest Green

Isn't the Bronte Border great!  And it is not even a Christmas focused stamp!  Yep! There is no mention of Christmas anyway on this baby and here she is getting a double season use! 
{value for money = love it!}




Now ... have I mentioned lately how much I {love} playing with these stamps!  I think it shows as I am having soo much fun with them!  

The tag I made myself and re-enforced the hole with an eyelet, the little strip of DP along the bottom I snagged from the left overs basket and for the trims, jewels, pearls, bell and twine I had a good dig around through my stash to find!   I finished it all off with a quick spray of Stampin' Up Brown Smooch. 

The lush-a-licious stamps I have used today are all from
