12 Tags of Christmas

I've been playing along with the challenges set over on Tim Holtz blog. Altho, I am missing a lot of the products needed I have had great fun using what I have at home. Here are my next 2 tags in the series.

Tag 7.

I had great fun trying the technique suggested which is a resist technique. A bit scarey adding paint to a rubber stamp 1st but I cleaned it straight away afterwards. I've used Distress Inks to colour a white cardstock tag & the stamp is from Paper Artsy.

On my 1st attempt I made a mask as required & even added a couple of different stamps for the background but the paint dabber I had used was a new one & when the resist technique didn't work quite right I realised the dabber needing the lid taking off & mixing properly as it didn't really work out.

So, on my 2nd attempt I used the background that is on the stamp (it was after midnight!!) but the masking technique did work!

Tag 8.

This tag was great fun to make... in fact, I have enjoyed making every tag. I am going to make myself a BIA book to store all my tags in & the materials required & pockets for the instructions.

I embossed the lampost but I'm not sure it shows up in the photo & used Copic pens for colouring.

Thanks for looking. Gez.xx

  3. WOW these are gorgeous sweetie!!!!! I love how you have interpreted the instruction to what stash you have! Well done! HUGS XXX

  4. Oooh! Gorgoeus......have a super Sunday

  5. More great tags for the collection! Acrylic paint won't hurt your stamps - it's a bugger to get off if you forget and let it dry on there but even then your stamp will be just fine! (can't speak for clear stamps but natural rubber is tough stuff!)

  6. Great tags Gez - good idea to make a bia book for storing - look forward to seeing it x

  7. Hi Gez,
    As usual you have produced great tags. I particularly like the second one. It's bright and the lamppost is fantastic.
