Linda's tag #11 is a beautiful shimmery tag with lovely hints of blue and a snowy snowflake inspired tag. I tried to play with the ideas of the embossing paste, snowflakes and the shades of blue in my take on her tag.
I started with a coat of embossing paste on my tag. I laid a layer of tissue paper over the embossing paste and inked up the snowflake stamp and stamped into the tissue paper. You get the stamped image and an impression in the embossing paste. I repeated randomly and at the end I sprayed the entire surface with a blue mist.
I let that dry and while it was drying I decided to cut out a series of snowflakes in vellum. I thought I would use the soft vellum to place the snowflakes onto my background.
It ended up darker than I intended with the aged silver embossing powder but I love the heavy metallic feel of the snowflakes.
Next up is Linda's rustic charming tag # 12. I love that Linda' folded her tag to create a folded tag with a message inside. I was sketching this idea and trying to figure out what I wanted to do with her lovely plaid on the outside and holly on the inside, when inspiration struck. What if I cut off both sides of the fold to make it a tag on either side. After I sketched this and thought about the plaid I realized it would look like a dapper Christmas vest. So here is my Santa's vest folded tag.
When you open it up inside there is a smattering of holly with red stickle berries
I added Christmas music in the background using the Antique Linen Dye Ink and then the berries over that with the Penny Black sentiment stamped in the center.
