25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there,

STAMPlorations is joining the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Event and this is my creation:

  • stamp one of the STAMPlorations Sketchy Yule Trees with Memento Tuxedo Black and color the image with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • add the baubles using different colors of Pearl Makers
  • cut out the largest and the smallest of the CUTplorations Manila Tags from watercolor paper
  • create a background using Distress Paints (Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Spun Sugar)
  • apply Prima Marketing Texture Paste Platinum Crackle through the ARTplorations Oh my Stars! Mini stencil and let the baubles and the stars dry thoroughly
  • stamp the "TO:" using the STAMPlorations Sketchy Alphabet set and Versafine Onyx Black
  • grunge up the edges of the tags with a black Stabilo All pencil and a wet watercolor brush
  • add splatters with Finetec Mica Watercolors Moon Gold
  • cut out a little star from glitter paper and add it to the top of the Christmas Tree
  • add some more texture by stamping the script from the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Elements set with Archival Ink Watering Can
  • dye a piece of torn seam binding with Distress Stains (Peacock Feathers, Broken China) and thread the strands through the holes of the tags

I hope you got inspired.
