So happy to be able to make a tag for my lovely friend Loll’s annual tag event. Each and every year she invites some friends to design a mixed media tag and then she makes a tag inspired by each one. Here’s the link to her event: Loll’s Twelve Tags of Christmas
When I sit down to design a card or a tag, there are very few preconceived notions as to where I’m headed. I simply grab what I feel like working with that particular day and go with it.
The Christmas Rose Bouquet image from WPlus9 was heat embossed in gold on a black tag. Next I used my Distress Oxides with a waterbrush to paint the image. Once that was completely dry, I added more colour with my Polychromos pencils.
The background was a combination of a spritz of Perfect Pearls Mists in Heirloom Gold, smudges of glue stick (yes, you read that right), smudges of white ink, and smudges of Tarnished Brass Distress Crayon.
I completed the tag with a bit of gold washi tape and some gold cording.
Many thanks to Loll for putting on her fabulous event each and every year!
Back soon with more my sweet friends…
