You'll be fed up of me before today's out. Everything's coming all at once ..... there's not enough week left!
I've got my Day 2 tag to share for Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas event .......
Everyone's having a great time .... why not join in the fun. Make a mixed media Christmas tag, link it up to the event on Loll's Blog and you could be in with a chance of winning one of the fab prizes that are up for grabs.
Here's my tag #2
A little on the sparkly side maybe ...... well, it is a Christmas tag after all!
I cut my tag from a piece of white cardstock and added colour using Distress Inks (Festive Berries, Fired Brick and a touch of Aged Mahogany) Nothing fancy, just applied the colours using brushes, starting on the edges and bringing the colour into the centre, gradually building up the depth of colour and adding shade.
I then flicked water over the top, let it sit for a few seconds and then mopped up the excess.
Using the Aged Mahogany Distress ink I then stamped the script over the background
Once everything was completely dry I used the Tim Holtz Poinsettia stencil, white texture paste and his brand new Vintage Platinum Distress Glitter Dust ..... this is so fine and sooooo shiny!!!
How gorgeous is that!
I stamped and embossed my greeting, in gold, onto a torn strip of vellum and attached across the centre (ish!) of the tag
and finished it all off with a nice festive red bow ..... 2 tags done ..... 10 to go!!
Luckily, this also fits in with this week's Merry Monday Challenge (anyone would think I planned it!!)
It's all about Red and Gold ....... very festive. I just hope it's OK to enter a tag!
And while we're on the subject of Tags ..... I'll also link this to the current HLS Christmas Challenge .... that's all about TAGS too.
Oh well .... can't sit around blogging all day (sigh!) stuff to do!
Not sure if the fireworks down on the beach will go ahead this evening .... it's still raining!! The little man has just informed me though that he still wants his hot dogs for tea ..... fireworks or not. That's me told!
Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day and have a lovely weekend.
Cheerio until next time (it'll be sooner than you think)
