Drum roll .............
Welcome to Day 12 of the 12 Tags for Christmas with Loll and Friends
It's the final day of what's been a fabulous Blog event yet again and guess what ..... I'm the Guest Designer today ..... whoo hoo!!
I was thrilled when Loll invited me to join in the fun and be a Guest Designer again ...... of course I said Yes!!! It's an honour to be part of such a talented bunch.
If you've been with me for the last week you'll have seen that I've been playing along each day ..... how could I not ....you know how much I love making tags.
So here's my final one ......
Inspired by a workshop I planned a while ago .......... one of my favourite techniques at the moment, white ink on Kraft card and then stamping in brown.
I started out by stamping the gorgeous Winter Lodge from Inkylicious onto the Kraft tag. I used the Java Bean Dye Ink from Ranger and my MISTI.
I love using my MISTI with detailed stamps like this, no need to worry about getting it perfect first time. Just keep re-inking the stamp and repeat as many times as needed to get the depth of colour, and the detail ... easy!
Next was the white ink ..... I used a brush to apply it around the edges of the tag, then I cut myself a paper mask to create some snowy hills in the background
I used a white gel pen to add the snow on the lodge and the trees ...... apply a little of the white pen around the edges and then use a water brush to spread the ink around.
Here's where the MISTI came in handy again ..... some of the white ink had gone over my stamped image so the detail wasn't as crisp as I wanted. Because I hadn't removed my stamp from the MISTI I just put my tag back in position, inked up the stamp again and Voila! perfect image.
I stamped one of the Clarity trees onto the side and embossed using WOW's Golden Pine embossing powder .... not sure it comes across in the picture but it's a lovely soft green colour with a hint of gold in there .... very pretty
I die cut the gorgeous reindeer from chipboard and inked him using Distress Inks. To add a bit more detail I stamped some snowflakes onto him and embossed them in white
Some sparkly glitter on his antlers and a festive bow around his neck give him the perfect Christmas look.
I added a little festive foliage to the bottom .....
and some words to the top .... along with a sprinkling of chunky white Embossing Powder
And there you have it ..... all twelve tags done.
There's still time for you to join in with the event .... the linky is staying open until November 25th.
Thanks to Loll for inviting me to be part of this year's fabulous event ..... it's been a fun 12 days!
And thank you for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day and have a fabulous weekend.
Cheerio until next time .......
