If you are looking to make tags for your gifts this year there are 2 great sites. One is Tracey McNeely's 25 Days for Christmas Tags and the Ellen Hutson's 12 Christmas Tags with a Feminine Twist. Both have amazing ideas from truly talent artists. Nichole Heady's blog also offers great technique ideas every Monday. (See links for all of these sites below.) I took inspiration from all these sites to create this tag:
I layered several colors of distress inks with a waterbrush. And added splatter of each color on the white watercolor paper background (it looks like colored snow falling). I stamped Papertrey Ink's Delightful Dahlia's leaves with versamark and Stampendeous white embossing powder. I used Northwood's stamp for the sentiment with Ranger gold embossing powder. I used The Cat's Pajamas Stitched Bow die with DCWV silver glitter paper.
This tag is entered in the following challenges:
- The 25 Days of Christmas Tags challenge at In My Creative Opinion. I was inspired by Tacey on Day 5 with the colors and the white embossing with watercolor.
- The 12 Tags of Christmas challenge at Ellen Hutson's Classroom. I was inspired by Carolyn on Day 1 with her technique and design.
- Make It Monday #233 at Papertrey Ink. I was inspired to add the paint splatters.
- The Time to Rewind challenge at Power Poppy. I used several challenges - Go For Gold, Pop of Pastel, Shabby & Chic, and Gifts from the Heart.
