I braved the weather and made it to the Post Office on time ..... that's my Clarity samples on their way across to the UK.
Just a quick post this evening so that I can link up my Tag #11 on Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas event.
The event has actually finished but the link is staying open until the 22nd (Sunday) so if you haven't been tempted to join in the fun yet there's still plenty of time.
Nice and simple for this one ....... acrylic paint, crackle glaze, gilding flakes and embossing powder
I wanted a bit of a weathered wood look to the background ..... so I painted my tag with a layer of dark brown acrylic paint and let it dry. Applied a thin layer of PaperArtsy Crackle Glaze over the top ..... if you follow the link there's a fab video on the website showing you how to use this. It always amazes me how fast the cracks start to appear!
I like to use an old credit card to spread the glaze, and I applied it in one direction trying to get it as even as I could, in one swoop so as to get the look that I was after. Once it was dry (you can use a heat tool to speed this up) I painted over the top with PaperArtsy's Fresco Finish paint in the Chalk shade
Using Flitter Glu, I stamped some of Tim Holtz's new Snowflakes onto my tag and then added some gilding flakes over the top
To finish off I stamped and embossed a festive greeting using stamps from the HLS Everyday Sentiments
Well .... that's eleven done ..... only one more to go. Hopefully I'll find time to share it before Sunday.
I'm also linking this up to the Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge which is all about Tags
...... the HLS Christmas Challenge which is also Tags
and ......... the HLS CAS Challenge where the theme is Gilding
Thanks for popping by .... again!
Cheerio until next time.
