One Crafty Bitch: Holiday Tag Exchange 2014

SUPER LATE POST ALERT! Ok, now that that's out of the way...

This past holiday season I took part in a holiday tag exchange and I took this opportunity to try out some new paper crafting techniques that I have been meaning to for a long time now. Specifically - using water colour paints to create backgrounds and using embossing paste with a stencil. I have to say, for a first attempt, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.

Because I was playing around, every tag came out looking pretty differently & I like that!

I went with a sentiment that had a Christmassy feel but was still multi-purpose enough to be used for winter birthdays, hostess gifts, etc as well.
