Hello again ......
It's time for today's tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends.
It's Tag number 8 for me but I think today is actually Day 10 of the event ...... are you joining in the fun?
I do love making tags, as you've probably guessed, and at this time of year we need so many of them!
My little winter treescape was cut using a die from Impression Obsession ...... cut a few times from white cardstock and again from YUPO paper coloured with Alcohol Inks.
Have you tried YUPO yet? It's so addictive. I started playing after seeing Loll's YouTube video ..... great techniques with different results everytime. This particular piece was coloured by letting drops of the alcohol inks fall onto the YUPO paper and then just letting them spread on their own .... I used shades of greens and blues and added in a touch of brown along with a few drops of the gold mixative. Once it was dry I spritzed the piece with a little Blending Solution and got a fabulous marbled effect.
I started with a black tag and added the snowy sky across the top using my Tim Holtz Speckles stencil and white texture paste
I then die cut my trees and layered the YUPO ones onto the white and created my little winter scene.
The first layer was attached flat onto the tag and you can see that I've added the second layer over the top, using foam pads, to add a bit of dimension
A touch of fine crystal glitter adds some sparkle and of course it needs a festive greeting ..... one of the stamps from the new Penny Black festive snippets 'T' for Transparent set.
And to add the final touch I added a few sparkly sequins ......
Thanks for popping by .... it's time I got the dinner on, hubby will be home soon
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Cheerio until next time
