Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to my U.S. friends.  We have a big day of family planned today, unfortunately some of the family has the flu so we will see if anyone has to stay home. 

I wanted to share my tag inspired by Linda's latest masterpiece Tag #9 in her 12 tags of Christmas sponsored by her Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Her tag is all elegant black, gold and vellum... I bet you want to see it!  It is gorgeous...

I am in love with how this turned out.  Thanks Linda for the inspiration! 

I stenciled the background with gold embossing paste I used the new Prima Crackle paste and I wish I had used Wendy Vecchi's only because of the effect I was going to. I am definitely going to play some more with the crackle paste.

I then waited for it to dry. I hate wait time. :)  I then sprayed ranger distress spray (soot) over the surface and let it dry. (Okay I helped it along with the heat gun)

I stamped the Hero Arts stamp over a sheet of vellum and then embossed it with the Ranger Embossing Powder Queens gold. (One of my all time favorites).   I didn't want to make the rosette that Linda made (But you really should see it as it is fabulous),  instead I decided on a vellum poinsettia.  After I positioned the flower in the bottom left I decided to use the leftovers to make a smaller version in the top right.

Then I decided a black tag with gold lettering would finish it off.  

I send joy to you on this Thanksgiving day and I hope you are spending it with loved ones.

  2. An absolute beauty, Sue! I like how you torn the middle out of the vellum and just covered the corners. I was wishing I hadn't covered up all the Christmas words on mine. Your gold embossed poinsettias are drop dead gorgeous! Another inspiring entry into my 12 tags challenge. Thanks so much for playing and keeping up with me! Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
