I used CTMH inks and the shimmer ribbon over a scrap of christmas music paper by ? that I clear embossed with snowflakes. I used Tim Holtz's new minis for my Christmas tree, stamping it once on the tag and then cutting out another one and popping it over top for some dimension. The stars are a die from My Favourite Things that I sprayed with gold shimmer from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I had another idea for this challenge, but I will post it later.....hopefully I get it done before the end, but times a'ticking :)
TAG 6 - I focused on the background again, using an old book and ripping off shreds of it....the whole technique can be found here at the Funkie Junkies site. I followed the layout, kind of, with a lamp post instead of a tree and the circle element beside it. I just got this die and couldn't wait to play with it. I used lots of liquid embroidery puff paint and managed to scavenge old light bulbs from our strings when we were decorating.
Down below I have my example of Tag 7, see the original here. I found an example of the technique on the Simon Says Stamp blog and followed that. I managed to sneak more lightbulbs on here, lol. I really wish I had picked a different colour of Pearl Ex, but didn't have time to redo it.....
YAY, Tag 8 and this post is almost done. I meant to spread these out, but lost my little camera and had to get them posted so I could link them up. This is my favourite tag and probably the trickiest to make so far.......I am going to make more of these, for sure. I just wish I could take better pictures to show you.
the Funkie Junkies Tag to wanting to do this. Its shiny, touchable, fuzzy, embossed, corrugated.......whats not to love, lol. I really worked at capturing this to share how gorgeous it is IRL. So, I started with a blank tag and stamped a CTMH Merry Christmas in black archival ink. I dumped gold EP over it and heated it. I then stamped Santa and masked him off.
Whew, a monster post, and 4 tags to go in less than 24 hrs!
