Twelve Tags of Christmas 11 - Water splats and Embossing
OK then, the only thing I had in the way of supplies for this task was a 'Faded Denim Distress Ink' Anyone who has been kind enough to drop in on my recent efforts will know that this has been par for my course! Has that stopped me? Oh no, not a jot....quite the contrary in fact! Using techniques learnt this week on previous tags, coupled with the 'water splats' from Tim blog today, I tried to emulate the look of shrink plastic and to infuse my tag with as much texture as I could manage.
For the tag itself, I swooshed distress ink over paper, water splatted it, dried with a heat gun and stamped and embossed snowflakes. I die cut 3 baubles using a Quickutz die, embossed them with a freebie folder, coloured the 'debossed' element with Sakura pens and found 3 clear plastic domed tags which (mostly) fitted over the baubles. I cut out the tree and added a sentiment.
