I really enjoyed playing with my Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous stencils yesterday, so I decided to have another play this morning, making this Christmas gift tag.
I started with a cream coloured tag as the base, Using a blending brush I added random colour using "Orange Blossom" Archival Ink. I then used the same ink through the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Flourish Layering Stencil".
In the areas where there was less pattern, I use "Coffee" Archival Ink through the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Chevron Shifter Layering Stencil".
I then moved on to the third stencil, using "Red Geranium" Archival Ink through the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Tiny Poinsettia Stencil" leaving some of the flourish in sight.
In the middle of the tag, I used Versafine Clair "Chianti" dark red ink to stamp the seniment, which is part of the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous cling stamp set called "Cozy Christmas CMS444".
I inked the edges of the tag using "Red Geranium" Archival Ink and then stuck the tag on to a deep red piece of card and cut to size. Around the edge of the coloured area I used a gold sparkle pen -after all, it's always good to sparkle a little at Christmas!
Finally, I added gold gel pen dots to the middle of the flowers and added some dots across the surface of the tag too, before threading the tag with gold coloured ribbon.
