Tag Tuesday on Sunday - Christmas In July Colors

Louise's challenge for us this week was to create a tag using Christmas colors (green and red) but not a Christmas card.

Here is my tag:


Recipe:
  1. Stamp Artistic Outpost Beyond the Sea - Lighthouse using black pigment ink.
  2. Smear Ranger Crushed Olive on craft mat and paint ground using water brush.
  3. Smear Ranger Distress Inks Fire Brick Red on craft mat and paint light house using water brush.
  4. Mask light house.
  5. Stamp background using Beyond the Sea - Song using black pigment ink.
  6. Stamp Sentiment onto Ivory Cardstock and cut into pieces.
  7. With mask still in place. Smear Adirondack green & light blue paints across sky.
  8. Versamark entire tag and clear emboss. Repeat 3 times.
  9. Bend and fold tag to get cracks in embossed surface.  Smear brown dye ink over surface and into cracks.
  10. Go up into kids bathroom and cut a piece off the draped fishnet in corner behind door. :O
  11. Attach cut fishnet to top right corner of card and leftovers from that to ribbon.
  12. Pop dot and attach sentiment.
This was very fun to create. I am going to have to put it on a card to send out because I love the fishnet effect. :) Don't worry the fishnet still looks good in the bathroom as it is all draped and not hanging where you can tell it has been cut.

Thanks for stopping by.. Have a blessed Sunday.

Back to work tomorrow so my card output will begin to slow down again! :)
