DragonsDream - TIO - M and Holly

So, the end of the alphabet... this fortnight was Jax's choice at Dragons Dream and she took M, and holly.  Very festive...Here's my tag.

 I started with brushos on my tag, but forgot to take a picture of this stage.
I used Emerald Green and Lemon and let them drip a bit to cover most of  the tag.

I stamped the "Christmas Carol" (Tim Holtz stamp) onto some Paperartsy tissue, with black archival.

It's too wide for the tag, so I tore it to fit and glued it with matte medium

Stamped three of the pairs of holly leaves (also Tim Holtz) on thin copy paper and Library Green archival ink and cut out.
I added some red Liquid Pearls for holly berries.
tied some red velvet and organza ribbons, and then dripped some scarlet brusho and spritzed with water, and dripped it over the tag.

My "M"?  haven't you guessed?  it's Music... Christmas music (or Manuscript) at that!

Come and see what my talented team mates have dreamt up over at Dragons Dream Team.
Hope you have all enjoyed playing along with our alphabet challenge this year, we can't wait for the next round of tags!

See you soon.

Great Tag Helen. The brushing looks lovely and I love the music on tissue paper. The pops of red Dd the finishing touch. Love it! X

Lovely festive tag, Helen. I think music is such an important part of the Christmas period: it's as great choice for the last word on our alphabet tags. Love the colour choices on this too! xxx

Lovely tag, I have still to play properly with my brusho's but love seeing what others do with theirs.
