Oxford Impressions Tags by Carol Fox

I have used the Oxford Impressions stamp set “Christmas Wish” today, and two of the Ranger Winter Distress ink pads, Festive Berries and Evergreen Bough. I do love this red, it is a really bright red and is lovely for your Christmas makes.

After I had inked the backgrounds with the inks using a blending tool, I built up the backgrounds by stamping with the same two Distress inks. I added subtle detail by stamping in Black Soot Distress ink and then added bolder images with a black Archival ink.
The main images and quotes were stamped separately onto card and then added to the tags. I dragged a black Dabber around the edges to give it a frame. Finishing it off with lines drawn round the quote elements, and inner edge of the tags. 
I added ribbon, holding it in place with tiny attacher staples.
