T!m's 12 Tags of Christmas - Day 2

Again focusing on the technique or just being inspired by T!m's example, I did actually make my own custom stamp pad out of a cushion shoe insert! I don't have cut n dry foam and this worked beautifully (see pic below so you believe me!) I'd love to take credit for this stroke of genius, but it was entirely my brilliant & talented Sister's suggestion.

I've chosen to do this "tag" on a inexpensive frame (from dollar tree!) which I stamped with alcohol ink (because the distress ink wouldn't dry on it). I added a seasonal salvage sticker onto a a yummy charcoal from Club Scrap's latest kit called Vogue. In the 3rd opening, I added a real pinecone and faux pine bough (also bought at dollar tree). The metal embellishment is a bottle cap from a Bud Light (i believe) and a circle cut from the Seasonal Salvage Sticker pack covered with crackle accents.
