Hi all! What a crazy busy Saturday we have had around here. I just carved out a little time to make a quick tag. Here is a link to Tim's blog where you can see the original tag and follow along too.
I, once again, didn't have all of the same supplies, so I made something similar with what I have. I used one of the new Hero Arts stamps that have a coordinating embossing folder. I didn't have any cool cut'n' dry felt, so I colored the stamp with markers and Distress inks. Then I sprayed it with water and stamped. It has a pretty water colored look to it. I also sprayed the whole thing with Pearl colored glimmer mist. I dried it with my heat gun and then put the whole tag through the embossing folder.
I embellished with a greeting by Hero Arts and some old die cuts from Quikutz. I colored my pearls to look like holly berries too. I used a Copic marker instead of alcohol inks. I used some silk ribbon and some hemp twine to top it all off and attach my bell.
Can you see my embossing and glimmery shine? I think it looks pretty girly, but I like the effect. It really looks different than Tim's tag. His is much more graphic.
Thanks again for stopping by to look. I am having fun trying out all the techniques Tim posts. I hope you are enjoying all the creativity too.
