Welcome to Day 6 of the annual 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2016! It's Lisa here with you today and my VERY special and extraordinarily talented guest is the fabulous Jill Foster of Penny Black fame. (YAY!!) Our tags today will be featuring the fun color scheme below and Penny Black products.
Let me show you the tag that I created for today's festivities using the Penny Black Cling Stamp, Frosty Day.
I used a variety of Distress Inks a smooshed them directly onto my work surface. Then I spritzed them with water and pressed my watercolor paper into the inks. I did this repeatedly until I achieved the color I desired.
Once the paper was dry I stamped it with the Penny Black Stamp using Versamark Ink then heat embossed using clear embossing powder.
I went over the clear embossing powder with the dark colors of the original Distress Inks (Hickory Smoke, Seedless Preserves) to make the tree really stand out.
Then, to give the appearance of snowflakes I flicked Gesso over the whole area using a paintbrush.
I die-cut "Peace" and some snowflakes from white glitter paper. and using black glitter tape I bordered the tag and also cut the hole for the tag.
Adding the embellishments is the final step. The Taylored Expressions Sequins - Build A Scene, Christmas have beautiful snowflake sequins! Looping some Avery Elle Baker's Twine through the hole at the top makes the tag extra cute, especially if you add a Tim Holtz Jingle Brad (I'm slightly addicted to these.).
Here's a close-up!
