Twelve Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist
I spent much of November looking forward to Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist. Of course, the challenge started at the same time December did, and most crafting plans seemed to go out the window. :D But I am determined to get at least a few tags done from the beautiful inspiration projects showcased. I'm starting with Day 1, and Julie Ebersole's beautiful tag. I was inspired by her gradient watercolour stripes and heat embossing. Here's my take:
I went from intense to light on my tag, and it had nothing whatsoever to do with not paying enough attention when I cut the first corner off my rectangle. :D
I liked the tag so much, I made another and turned it into an element on a card:
I layered the tag on some coordinating patterned paper, added a panel of a different paper, and called it done. ;)
I hope to get a few more tags done before the challenge closes... we'll see how much life and Christmas get in the way.
