Hi all, it’s Day 3 of Tim Holtz’s 12 tags of Christmas and we love the techniques again he just shared with us. Tim’s tag can be found here.
I had no large text Christmas stamps so I made a collage of Christmas stamps and inked them all up different colours. I embossed the bottom of the tag with an inked embossing folder to give the effect of colour in behind the snowflakes. I added some leaves and a flourish. I made berries from card candy and coloured them red. I then used twine and a bell for the top of the tag.
It is very different from Tims tag but different is fun right?!
I really liked Tim’s bonus project, so I decided to create a tag along that line.
This watercolour effect looks great and so easy to achieve. I haven’t got many of the reinkers, so I just simply inked the snowflake stamp with different colours starting with the lightest. I also sprayed the tag with a little perfect pearls mist. I added some charms and white tulle.
I hope you are enjoying this crafting journey as we are.
