Twelve Tags of Christmas With Loll and Friends - Guest Designer Day 2
I'm thrilled to be a guest designer again this year for Loll's annual Twelve Tags of Christmas. The last two events were chock-full of beautiful mixed media tags, and I'm sure this year will be just as inspiring.
I went for non-traditional colours for the background. I sponged Shabby Shutters, Pickled Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade over my tag, then added clear stencil paste through a Tim Holtz stencil. Once that was dry, I sponged more inks over to darken the background and highlight the stencilling, then flicked water over the tag.
I stamped the large reindeer from The Bee's Knees Christmas Reindeer, watercoloured it with Distress Inks and die-cut it using the coordinating Christmas Reindeer Dies. The snow hill was cut using the CUTplorations Stitched Snow Hills die, and the tree is Oregon Fir by The Frantic Stamper, which I covered with Eiskristall glass glitter. The final touch was some gold fibres and a pink grosgrain bow.
Be sure to visit Loll's blog every day during the event for some fabulous inspiration from Loll and other guest designers.
Thanks so much for asking me back, Loll, I'm honoured!
