Hostess Gift Tag

 

My niece always hosts our family Christmas gathering.  And I always take her a hostess gift.  This year its going to be an edible gift.  Not sure what I will be making but it has to be something she loves to eat.  Maybe my Sugared Pecans!

With that in mind I decided to make a gift tag with a vintage flair.  And wanted to add a cute Magnolia stamp too.  I looked in my small collection and chose Kitchen Tilda.  Now you would think that since it’s Christmas time I would have used the traditional colors.  No I sure didn’t.  Tilda is wearing her brown cooking outfit with a pretty rose/pink head scarf.  I love the colors I used together.  Let me know what you think.

Kitchen Tilda Hostess Tag 

Everything used on this tag is from my stash. Some of the embellishments I had so long that I literally forgot where I bought them.  Tilda was colored using Copic markers. Here are the colors I used:  Dress, apron, socks, shoes & wooden spoon colored with E33, E35, E37 & E47 (with a touch of YR20 in the center of the wooden spoon).  Scarf and ribbon on spoon used R39, R59, & a touch of R83. Skin colored with E00, E11, E21 & R20.

This is a Prima Rose from the Marcel collection. I added very little stickles glitter to the edges.  And a small doily added to the back of the rose.

I hope you liked my Kitchen Tilda Hostess Tag as much as I liked creating it.  See you soon!
