25 Days of Christmas Tags: Day 25


It's Day 25 of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event! 
25. 25. You know what that means, right? One more month. ONE MONTH. 
Anyway. Today Tracey welcomes Pink & Main as her guest! 


I have two tags today.


I made each tag a different way, but in the end, they look quite similar. My reindeer tag first:



I wanted to see if I could successfully watercolour this as a one-layer tag. First step was to stencil some snowflakes before colouring the sky with Twinkling H2Os. The snow also got some shimmer, as well. Once that was dry, I coloured Rudolph with Zig markers. Once everything was dry, I added some Nuvo drops to his cuffs and hatband. 
Next up, a penguin! 


For this tag, I was happy to use a die cut over the tag base. I lightly sponged some distress ink for the sky, before popping my coloured penguin on top. I decided he needed snow just like Rudolph, but this time used some Nuvo drops. I thought the tassel and braided twine went well with his hat. 
I had a supervisor while I was photographing my tags... 


😂

You might think Day 25 would be the final Day of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags, but no! We have a bonus day tomorrow! Hope to see you again then.

These are both just sweet Lindsey. I don't have any Twinning H2o's yet but my sister's do and they love them. Actually, I don't have any Nuevo drops yet either??? Time to rectify that! LOL Great tags and I have enjoyed seeing ALL of your tags! TFS!
