12 Days of Christmas - Day 12

Today is the last day of the 12 Days of Christmas Smeared and Smudged style.  I know that Alex and I have enjoyed ourselves immensely and hope you have as well.  The projects shared by all the Jolly Bloggers have been amazing!!!


For the final project, Alex has created another tag for your viewing enjoyment.  She used Glimmer Mists for the background again.  The gold in the mists is so brilliant in real life, I wish it would photograph better.  Alex then stamped one of the angels and words from the Smeared Ink The Symbology of Angels set.

Alex then used and xacto knife to cut around portions of the image so that she could adhere actual feathers where the wings are on the stamped image.  (my tail is looking a little short right now, just sayin'.....)


I think this is my personal favorite of all of Alex's tags so far.  I feel a bit of a kindred spirit thing going on for some reason.

For those of you concerned, as you can see, the glitter did wash out.  Not easily or painlessly, but next time I will just move faster.

Challenges:
Something Completely Different - tags - Happy Christmas
Kard Krazy: Tag Tuesday - Colors of Christmas , Silver or Gold (gold in the glimmer mist)
Paper Playtime #30 - Anything Christmas


Happy Holidays!
Edgar
