Happy Saturday! We have a new Trend Challenge over at Just Us Girls. This week, Maria has chosen a mixed media challenge. Love these!
I love tags! I don't know what it is about them, but I just love creating them! I started this one with a manila tag. I stamped the snowman and sentiment in Archival ink and overstamped the snowman in blue ink (hard to see...it's the halftone stamp). Then I sponged red distress in on the other half of the tag. Before it dried, I covered it with clear embossing powder and heat set it. I then took more distress inks to age the tag. I found these holiday buttons in my stash, but they were too bright so I added some distress inks to it to distress it a bit too. Twine was added to the button and it was attached to the tag. I chose a ribbon and burlap ribbon for the finishing touch.
You can see more inspiration from the design team on these blogs.
