I can't wait to see them all hanging up at Christmas!
If you want to see the original tag then click here - Obviously I was inspired by the reindeer and the stars...I also loved the pastel colour scheme and delicate stamping...though I really struggle with delicate stamping - mine tends to be much heavier handed.
Linda used Distress Stains....Frayed Burlap and Picket Fence. I had Frayed Burlap but I didn't have Picket Fence - However I do have Picket Fence Distress Paint. I have no idea if you are meant to combine stains and paints...but it did seem to have a weird separation effect on the Frayed Burlap DS....it seemed to 'curdle' slightly and tones of blue and pink began to appear....I had smooshed them both over the craft mat, given it a spritz of Biscotti pearls and after wiping the tag through it I was getting a 'mother-of-pearl' effect.
I really liked this so I carried on. A light dabbing of Vintage Photo DI around the edges added warmth to the tag. I used Watering Can Archival ink to stamp some script and flourishes around the tag.
I don't have the reindeer or star shapes....so I decided to use some tracing paper and I traced the images directly from the tag on the computer screen and used these as templates to cut the items out by hand.
The reindeer was triple embossed with gold embossing powder and stamped with a script stamp while still soft.A piece of twine was tied around its neck.
The stars were painted with Vintage Lace Fresco paint then stamped with a script stamp in Watering can archival ink. I then covered the stars with Clear Rock Candy distress stickles dry glitter..
A piece of pale beige burlap style material topped the tag and I dabbed the edges with White fire treasure gold to give a gorgeous metallic sheen. I also brushed a little Treasure Gold over the glitter...which really adds to the sparkle!
