It's time for the November Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers. This month the challenge is "Tag".
I find making tags quite a challenge - it's a smaller canvas and a different shape to a regular A2 card. But I was happy with how this one turned out (and it's in my favourite colour combination of blue, silver, and white!).
I started with a blank white tag and sponged it with Distress inks. When dry, I used a tiny snowflake stencil and went over it with Pearlescent embossing paste.
I set that aside to dry while I die cut the trees out of white cs and the word "winter" out of self-adhesive silver paper. I very lightly rubbed a green coloured pencil over the trees, then added the dies and white layers to the tag.
Finally I added glue to the hilltops and trees, and sprinkled on glitter. The ribbon is hard to see, but it is blue, with silver threads that match the sentiment.
Thanks for dropping by, and please join us by making Christmas tag for the Happy Little Stampers challenge. You have until the end of November to enter.
I'm adding this tag to Loll Thompson's Twelve Tags of Christmas event. This is for mixed media Christmas tags and is open for entries until November 22nd. Every day from now until November 15th, Loll will be posting one of her tags alongside two tags by guest designers. I'm honoured to be a guest designer on November 14th. So watch for another tag from me that day!
