Me again ...... with, wait for it .... not one, but two Tags for Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas Event! you can guess where I've been for most of the day!
First up .... tag #6
To add a bit more interest I over stamped with more snowflakes, this time using Versamark ink, and then embossed with a white powder
I die cut the ice skates from white pearlescent card, grey card for the heels and the blades were cut from silver mirri, Once the boots were all layered, I added some narrow black ribbon for the laces and a touch of detail by stamping snowflakes, using Versamark again, and embossed with white powder
I attached the skates to my tag using foam pads and added a festive verse to the bottom.
Tag #7 is all about the big guy ....... Santa!
He's simply stamped with Black Versafine onto white cardstock, then I've inked around the edges using Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress inks, and finished with a touch of Aged Mahogany.
I highlighted his spectacles using a Sakura Stardust Gel Pen, and added just a touch of pink to his cheeks ....... what a jolly looking fellow!
For the background, I stamped the sentiment onto the bottom of a white tag and then using Versamark ink, I stamped a few snowflakes around the words and embossed them with a clear powder.
I then inked the tag using the same colours of Distress as I did on Santa. Because the clear embossing acts as a resist, my snowflakes slowly started to appear as I added more ink.
Once I was happy with the colour, I buffed over the embossed snowflakes just to remove any excess ink.
I then spritzed with a little water like I did on last night's tag, and finished off by stamping more snowflakes only this time I embossed them with a sparkly white powder.
To finish off, I added a cute little stocking.
I'm not taking any chances ....... I believe in Santa .... do you?
Thanks for popping by ...... enjoy the rest of your evening.
Cheerio until next time
