12 tags of Christmas - day 3

Today, Tim wanted us to make a plaid with alcohol inks. I don't like alcohol ink on paper very much, it seems like overkill, and alcohol inks STAIN. It has to be pretty important for me to start dripping that stuff around. I'm more likely to juggle goblets of bleach and red wine over my oriental rug than to work with alcohol inks if I can avoid it. This plaid was done with regular old distress inks. They aren't quite as bright, but I don't mind.

The stamp is TAC - is it a blue jay or a cardinal? I can't tell. The little polymer clay mittens were purchased at a craft show years ago - I thought they looked great with the plaid. I didn't do any metallic embellishment on this tag. the glossy paper is shiny enough.
