Blimey, I have been offline for ages!!!
Here are the remaining two tags that I made for the tag book I showed you before:
Tag 4 - Front
For this tag, I coloured the whole of it using Walnut Stain Distress ink and then spritzed with Perfect Pearls in water. I then stamped the "Tim" Santa. He is so cute tapping his nose, so I added the words "Wait and See" using red Junior Dymo tape. Then I took two numbers of Grungeboard and coloured them with Fired Brick Distress ink. To make then stand out I used a scrap of paper from the Cosmo Cricket "Be Good" range. I then smudged gold Dabber all around the edges to complete the whole look of the tag.
Tag 4 - Back
To get the aged look of this tag, I stamped and embossed in clear, a large distressed stamp. Once I had heat embossed the image, I then used Cut & Dry foam to spread Walnut Stain ink over the whole image. I then used a damp baby wipe to clean off the ink from the embossed area. I then used an offcut of mountboard and stamped the Merry Christmas message. This was attached to the tag using 3D foam and I added a little tree charm to it using a brad and some gold thread. The little flourish is Grungeboard that I coloured with my Gold Krylon.
Tag 5 - Front
For the main image part of this tag, I took some glossy card and used Alcohol inks to achieve the red and gold colours. The inks I used were Red Pepper, Cranberry and then a Gold Mixative. I stamped the image using a Sepia Versafine pad. The little Poinsettia were added just to finish the whole image. I coloured the whole of the tag with Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany Distress inks and then stamped the word "Believe" in Aged Mahogany. I used a gold Dabber to smudge the edges and also stamped the Poinsettia on the edges of the tag using the Gold Dabber.
Tag 5 - Back
As with the front of the tag, I used glossy card and alcohol inks to achieve the colours. Then, once I had stamped the image, I matted this onto gold Mirri card. I made the background a smudgey brown colour by using Walnut Stain ink and then stamped the mistletoe stamp onto the top of the tag. The little plate is Grungeboard that I coloured with Gold Krylon, stamped the word "Wish" onto a scrap piece of inky card and then attached using a couple of red brads.
I really enjoyed making this tag book. Here is a piccie of the finished article. You can see that I bound them using a book ring and added a few ribbons just to finish it all off.
Thanks for looking
