For my back ground of my tags I've used a stencil & Distress stains , Fired Brick, Walnut stain, & Crushed Olive.
My images I've used were free images from a craft magazine which I've put onto some card .
I've added some lace rim , twine , & seam binding.
I found some metal embellishments in my stash which I found I could use as well so it all worked out quite well for my tags.
November postcard swap on http://www.ukstampers.co.uk has the theme set as Christmas for this month , because we don't put our postcard in the post till the end of month so by the time our swap partners receive them it will be just going into December.
So here is my offering for the swap.
I've covered my card with an oddment of Christmas scrapbook paper which already looked like a Christmas postcard .
I then stamped the Tim Holtz bird onto some plain card & coloured the image.
Using some other Christmas stamps which were , holly & berries, Santa hat & stars , I stamped them onto white card & set about colouring them also .
After a bit of cutting out I glued the images onto the postcard & finished everything off with adding some a product called Snowtex onto the Santa hat which gives some texture to the hat while looking like snow , & added a dear Santa ticket I found in my Christmas stash & wrote I can explain.
