Day 11 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event, and once Remembrance Day services were over, I got to work. Yesterday's tag was clean and graphic, so I decided to go a little more layered today, using Daniela Dobson's tag as my inspiration.
Like Daniela, I started with a manila tag as my base; mine is cut from a manila file folder using the Technique Tuesday tag die I won through last year's tag event! I clear-embossed two large snowflakes before sponging my tag with distress ink. The trees are embossed with aged gold distress embossing powder and the small snowflakes with white. I kept my sentiment banner white to go with those snowflakes. Finally I added a fold of manila and a snap to the top with a loop of hemp twine. (I've made a lot of tags; I may have felt the need to change things up a little. :D)
Next up, a card for Merry Monday's challenge to create a card with a winter activity on it:
So yes, I realize my activity is implied, not being done. Oh well, if it doesn't count, it's still another card for the pile! I could have totally copied Bonnie's DT card; these skates are from the same set. I watercoloured a soft blue-grey wash around them before colouring the poinsettia. Other than the heel, I left the rest uncoloured. I dry-embossed the grey panel with woodgrain before putting everything together.
