Festive and lots of techniques! I just had to play in Loll’s Twelve Tags of Christmas! I LOVE tags!
Getting a good photo of all these techniques was almost too much for a very amateur photographer like me! I have a terrible time giving up though! lol So, the top two close ups are to show the gold embossing powder on the embossing paste.
I cut a tag with the largest MFT pierced tag die in white 110# cover card-stock
I did Loll’s pearl background technique on it next…the only thing I changed from what she does is instead of using plastic wrap, I used a plastic bag and put my hand inside it, scrunched it up a little, picked up the pearl mixative and pounced, keeping my hand clean! haha The right one anyway! lol
Next, using the ink blending tool and Gathered Twigs Distress ink pad, I inked the whole tag.
Over the top of that I placed the Tim Holtz stencil and applied white embossing paste. Cleaned it up then…
I dumped Ranger Queens Gold embossing powder over the whole tag, removed the excess and heated it with a heat tool.
I LOVE the look of the powder on the paste!
I die cut the Seasons Greetings Avery Elle die from gold metallic card-stock
I did cut the Penny Black holly die from Copic coloring card-stock.
Color the holly cut with Copic markers
Then with the matching Penny Black holly stamp, I stamped the colored die cut, after stamping off on scrap paper, with Gathered Twigs Distress ink pad. This stamp is from several years ago and they don’t advertise that it matches but it does and looks so awesome! Another, exclamation when finished!!! LOVE it!
I adhered everything to the tag with mounting squares cut to fit.
I think I will hang this on my Christmas tree, that’s how happy I am with it! : )
