The prompt for Week 46 is "3D/Decoupage".
I decided to go with a Christmas theme for my tag, starting with a patterned paper background. I edged the tag in two shades of Distress Oxide Inks: Peeled Paint and Fired Brick using a blending tool. I then stamped the "Merry Christmas" sentiment in Versafine Clair "Chianti" which is a deep shade of red.
For the lantern, I used an Imagination Crafts stamp from their "Decoupage Range". I stamped out the whole image twice and the holly three times in Versafine "Stormy Gray" ink.
I coloured the image using a selection of Distress Oxide Inks:
- Antique Linen
- Squeezed Lemonade
- Mustard Seed
- Carved Pumpkin
- Fired Brick
- Barn Door
- Weathered Wood
The fussy cutting around the lantern and the holly took a while but I got there in the end, layering the images up using foam pads to provide a decoupage/3D look to the image.
