25 Days of Christmas Tags: Day 18


It's Day 18 of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags! Today's sponsor is Avery Elle
Lots of cute images to choose from (and they have great storage bags for stamp sets and dies!), but it seemed time for a skating moose:


What's not showing in the above shot is the blue and sparkly tag background: 


Okay, still not showing up that well. :P Looks great in real life, believe me. I mixed some distress ink with iridescent medium and a little water, then smooshed the tag into it. The moose himself is watercoloured with Zig markers, except for the skate blades, which have silver glitter marker. He and some white die cut cardstock (didn't want him sky-skating) are popped up on the base. I thought his sweater and toque made him rustic enough to use gingham ribbon and jute twine for the ties. 
Lots of sweet tags on Tracey's blog today! Be sure to check them out, and remember all the guests have sponsored great prizes to win for those who comment and/or make tags! 

Supplies: white cardstock, Strathmore watercolour cardstock, Avery Elle Snow Much Fun stamps and die, Versafine onyx black & tumbled glass distress inks, Zig watercolour markers, Paper Smooches gift tag 2, waves & stitched dies, Winsor & Newton iridescent medium, Spica silver glitter marker, Recollections gingham ribbon, May Arts jute twine, foam tape

Pin It Now!
