Inkurable Challenge "Holly"

I know tags are all the go around this time of year and I suppose a little of Tim Holtz has rubbed off on me as of late, what can I say he is addictive!  Although I don't own a lot of his products it hasn't stopped me experiementing with a few of his techniques. 
With this tag I just sprayed an ordinary old luggage tag with Tattered Angels "Peppermint Stick", inked around the edges with the old vintage photo ink pad and dropped a bit of water here and there.  Now Holly. Didn't think I had much in that line but then I remembered an old little sizzix die cut I had tucked away in the draw somewhere that would be ideal, thanks for reminding me Sarah!  I didn't have the right colored ribbon so I sprayed that too.  Can you see the cool little rusty star at the top?  Cool hey! The rest is history.  Just ask if you need any other info.

Hi Rossylalah and Happy New Year to you, your tag for the Holly Challenge is just gorgeous! I love the colours. I just saw your comment regarding your Unity Stamp Purchase but unfortunately I don't own this one.......another place to perhaps look in the gallery of would be the Unity Place Forum, maybe somewhere has posted a pic there using it.
