So now down to business.
The prompt for Week 1 is "Celebrations"
We celebrate many things, birthdays, an anniversary, Christmas, new babiesm passing a test and so on. I've based my tag on new year, but you can of course chose any form of celebration.
I started my tag by making the background using various shades of Distress Oxide inks. I used a Stampin' Up stamp for the "Celebrate" sentiment.
Using a round punch and an old dictionary I have had since school, I punched circles of text and stuck them on top of the Oxide background. I then ran the whole thing through the Big Shot in an embossing folder with concentric circles. I then inked the edges of the tag with a grey and black ink.
I die cut the numbers and coloured them with Versafine Clair ink in a shade of "Blue Belle". Using a silver glitter Signo pen, I added dots onto the blue numbers. Then stuck the numbers to the tag.
Finally I mounted the tag onto a dark blue card and added sequins across the surface of the tag.
