Hello, I hope everyone’s having a great weekend so far. There are lots of photos in tonight’s post, feel free to ignore the waffle in between.
On her excellent blog this week Darcy challenged us to make Christmas gift tags, using mostly one stamp, preferably from PaperArtsy. I don’t have any of their Christmas stamps, so I chose the large heart from Darcy’s first PA stamp set & got to work.
Up first, gold embossing & painting with London Bus fresco paint.
Next, stamping the swirl from the top of the heart with Red Geranium Archival ink.
Covering a kraft scalloped circle with Vintage Photo distress stickles, Antique Linen distress ink, Poppy Promarker & adhesive pearls on the heart.
London Bus fresco, Crackle Glaze & Snowflake fresco.
Heart stamped with Red Geranium & embossed with clear EP.
Kraft card. Heart painted with Snowflake, snowflake die cut from card painted with London Bus.
Number five. I used a craft knife to cut out the heart, initially stamped with Potting shed Archival. Broken China distress stickles & Glossy Accents to embellish, layered on to patterned paper.
And finally. Scalloped circle painted with Spanish Mulberry, Pumpkin Soup & Tinned Peas. Snowflake fresco applied through Dylusions stencil & splatters made with watered down Little Black Dress fresco. Heart stamped on to card painted with Spanish Mulberry.
All six gift tags. The banners are from a Tim Holtz die, the greeting was a freebie stamp.
Thanks to Darcy for getting my brain working – not easy at the best of times.
Tomorrow I am attending Neil Walker’s Pandora’s Box class at The Craft Barn, so I might be back tomorrow night to tell you about it. Have a great Sunday.
