Wishful tag

Christmas is just around the corner. It's december 1:st and I'm celebrating with a little Christmas tag. I'm off Christmasshopping soon today, but I wanted to show you the quick tag I made. Took me 30 minutes tops. The image is from plate 22 from sweetpea stamps.

The tag is quite simple really, just stamped the image once, added another bamboo stamp on top. Then I coloured the image with promarkers, added a gold bead on the flower and filled it with crackling lacquer. I stamped the word "wish" in fired brick distress ink and added red glitter glue on top. Finally I inked the edges with peeled paint. And voilá, a finished tag in 30 minutes tops.
Tag measures about 4-1/2 x 2".

I'm entering the special promarker challenge with this tag. It's a challenge that goes on from today (dec 1:st) until january 5:th. You need to make anything but a card with a Christmas theme. There are some great prizes to win so I'm in ;)
