GECKO GALZ 6th TAG OF CHRISTMAS by Carol Salisbury

Winter Wishes Tag
Carol Salisbury


   Gecko Galz Winter Wishes collage sheets
       Robin Gough paper pkg...Rust Red Snowflakes & Pale Snowflakes
   Large tag, music note paper, modeling paste, carpenters patch tape, diamond & platinum stickles, vintage photo & old paper distress inks, Ingvild Bolme white chalk ink, cheesecloth, pop dots, red trim, lace trim, pointsettia, Martha Stewart edge & corner punch, green wire, glitter and
sprays...Dylusions ink spray - Cut Grass
             Perfect Pearls Mists - Heirloom Gold
             Shimmerz Paints Spritz - Bed of Roses


 I started with a large (5 1/8 x 10 1/2) tag. 
   I cut the music note paper to fit over the tag, then distressed the edges. Using a couple of stencils, I added the modeling paste in a few random places. 
Wanting a spattered effect I sprayed all three sprays from about 12 to 16 inches away and while it was still wet from the sprays I scrunched up the edges a little bit here and there. Lastly I swiped some white chalk paint all over.
I put the carpenters patch tape on one side.
I punched 2 sides & corner of the Pale Snowflake paper from Robin G, adding platinum stickle dots within the punched area. Then glued it down on top of the background.
I added the red trim with hot glue.
From there I added some cheese cloth and one of the Winter Wishes images, that I put old paper distress in on the edges and glitter to give sparkle to the flowers. I used pop dots to add this image.
 I distressed the edges of the Red Snowflake paper also from Robin G and added some modeling paste to one corner. I added some white chalk ink all around the edges. Using pop dots I put that on the tag.
I also used pop dots to add the Winter Wishes sentiment and skates image. The skates image has platinum stickles around the edges. The sentiment was inked with old paper distress ink then topped with diamond stickles...I spread it with my fingers. 
I tucked a couple pieces of lace trim under a couple of pieces as well as a little bit of cheese cloth under the bottom image. 
I added the poinsettia to the top corner.
Then to finish off the whole thing I used my finger and some diamond stickles and dabbed it all over.
