12 Tags of Christmas - Day 11...Sewn with Love

Inspired by Tim's Tag for Day 11, it was time to improvise again!  I rummaged through my steel ruled dies looking for something that I thought would be a decent size when shrunk, and after many attempts, went with the Sewing Room Die.

The tag background was created with the Spritz and Flick Technique using Distress Inks in Weathered Wood and Iced Spruce, edged with Gathered Twigs.  I overstamped the Honeycomb Background from Our Daily Bread Designs in Antique Linen.  The sentiment is from ODBD Sewn with Love stamped in Coffee Archival on Sticky Back Canvas.  I die cut the French Pastry Die from Bo Bunny Snowfall pattern paper to add behind the shrunken Sewing die.  To finish the tag, I added some Faux Stitching using a STAEDTLER Triplus Fineliner and Drywall tape.
