I've been having so much fun joining in the 12 Christmas Tags with a Feminine Twist Challenge at Ellen Hutson's The Classroom Blog. I've tried new techniques ... combined fun elements ... and am simply having a wonderful Christmas time (yes, there has been some Christmas Carol singing as well).
This tag was actually inspired by the very *Tim Holtz-like* design of Paula Cheney ... I translated vintage into funky with my inky design.
Background is made by putting two colors of Distress Stain on my craft sheet, misting with water, and dragging watercolor paper through the colors. I inked my embossing folder with coordinating Distress Ink (Evergreen Bough) and then inked the raised areas a bit more for contrast after embossing.
I used a glittery 3-D sticker, glittery ribbon and lace to complete the design.
Accessories: Embossing frame to cut the top of the tag; circle punch for reinforcement, Glitter ribbon, white lace, white foam thickers, snowman 3-D sticker, adhesive gems, embossing folder, craft sheet
