Probably the projects I enjoy the most are making tags.
They just come easier for me. And this one I tried to keep simple in design and technique.
No embellishments, just some inking and stamping with a touch of heat embossing and penwork thrown in.
I used the Tattered Pinecone die for the greenery on the lamppost.
I start with Distress Inks Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers, Stormy Sky, and Dusty Concord for the background.
Adding that Ripe Persimmon REALLY made this a brightly colored scene. The more layers of color, the richer it becomes, as in 2 layers of yellow.
The snowflakes were stamped a 2nd and 3rd time without re-inking the stamp to create a faded effect.
The Christmas Carols stamp is from Mini Holidays Collection that is stamped on Manila Cardstock with Festive Berries and Mowed Grass Distress Inks then embossed with Clear Super Fine Embossing Powder. Antique Linen Distress Ink tones down the cardstock.
Cut it out and use pens to add shadows, add 3D Foam Squares to the back to glue to tag. I used pens to add more shadows and accents here and there.
Check out the links along the way to Inspiration Emporium for supplies I used.
It's layered onto black chipboard and 2 simple gold cord bows complete the tag.
Be Well and Be Good to Each Other.
