I'll be Home for Christmas Tag

Hi everyone! I'm back today with a quick tag I created for Christmas!

I started by inking a glass tray with Ebony and Coconut Blends and adding water to each ink. I placed the Tag into each ink mixture until the tag was completely covered with ink and once dry I inked a  Damask Cling Stamp with Pewter Ink and stamp onto the tag.

I inked a glass tray with Coconut Blends and add water and loaded a paint brush with the ink mixture, splattered the tag and let dry.

I cut the "I'll be Home for Christmas" sentiment and fussy cut the truck with tree from the Farmhouse Christmas Stripe on Ivory Cardstock. A side note...push lid in onto the ink pads there will be ink transferred to the inside of the lid. You can paint from what is transferred onto the inside of the lid instead of loading a glass tray with ink. I painted the bed of the truck with Cattail Ink, the cab of the truck with Fruit Punch Ink, the wheel with Graphite Ink and the pine tree with a combination of Shamrock and Citronella Inks.

I inked the edges of the sentiment with Fruit Punch Ink and adhere to tag. I also cut one piece of patterned cardstock to cover the back of the tag, adhered and punch a hole in the top of the tag. Next I placed a piece of glitter cardstock on top of a Tear Drop Circle Diecut and sandwich between cutting pads and run through a diecut machine and adhered to the tag along with the truck. I added clear glitter glue to the pine tree tips in the truck. 

I tied off a 8" piece of seam binding and 8" piece of lace to the top of the tag and finished by adding a button on top of the lace and seam binding. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

 Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:
