Over the last week I’d been having fun looking at YouTube videos and blogs about creating backgrounds. There are some terrific ideas out their in blogland. I wanted to make a few more tags to add to our Christmas presents and thought I would use some of the ideas I had found. Talk about coincidence, I looked at the Some Odd Girl Blog to see if I had any luck in last month’s challenge (no I hadn’t 😦 ) but I noticed that the challenge was to create your own background. Well I have the tags finished now and will enter the challenge.
All of the tags were die cut from white card stock. This tag I coloured by rubbing Ranger Distress Inks over the card with the applicator. I used “faded jeans” and “broken china”. Next I misted the tag with water to make a dappled effect. I then added some “star dust” Stickles and hopefully they look like snowflakes. I die-cut some Memory Box Christmas tress and a hill from “snow” card. I coloured the sweet stamp from Some Odd Girl “Snow Bunny” stamp with Copics and fussy cut it. The last step was to heat emboss the sentiment in black.
I heat embossed some snowflakes on the white card with a sparkly embossing powder, then I once again coloured this tag by rubbing Distress Inks over the card, “spun sugar” and “tattered rose”. I coloured the sweet stamp from Some Odd Girl “Holideer” stamp with Copics and fussy cut it.
I used two Distress Ink colours, “wild honey” and “shabby shutters” on this tag. First using the applicator I added “shabby shutters” then applied a flourish swirl over the tag and applied wild honey. Next I covered the tag with ds tape, removed the top off the tape and sprinkled clear glitter over the top. I coloured the sweet stamp from Some Odd Girl “Partridge” stamp with Copics and fussy cut it.
I covered the final tag with washi tape. If you look closely you will see that I’ve attached it diagonally. I coloured the sweet stamp from Some Odd Girl “Chris Mouse” stamp with Copics and fussy cut it.
Well these tags were fun!
Bye for now,
