Recycled Tag No.2

Hey Guys!
So I'm back and today's post is a part of the recycling card series and I'm sharing a mini tutorial. So for today, I've used just one card to make the tags. Hope you enjoy the tutorial!

Step 1- Cut out four tags from the card base.

Step 2- Prep your base. Since I didn't have gesso, I used my modelling paste in a few places and also used a stencil with it. 
Step 3- I added color to the tags. I wanted to create two different color tags. So I added colors and DI's to highlight the texture formed by the stencil.
Step 4- Next I used a few scraps of paper and colored them with DI's mermaid lagoon and cracked pistachio. Once they got dried, I stamped different background stamps to give different patterns. Once they were done, I rolled them up into rolls.

Step 5-  Cut and stick the rolls in the shape of a tree. The last step is to EMBELLISH! So i went a little crazy here. I added sequins, a quilled pot, star on the top and drew snowflakes with my 3D outliners. And I added a piece of ribbon to complete the tag. Here are a few closeups.

Entering them for the following challenges:
