Well, here I am, late, but here! The rules are pretty simple. Here they are in Linda's words.
So, that's all there is to it. Seeing Linda's tags every week makes being inspired by them easy. You can go to her blog and check out every one of them from the links on the side bar. She's already up to week 5!! I've got to get moving. I do have the first two finished. So, I've made a start.
Here is the first tag.
I used a regular size 8 tag and Festive Berries Distress Stain to color the background. Festive Berries is my all time favorite red. I decided to use the Tim Holtz stamp set, Deco Christmas, because I love anything Art Deco. I was so excited about this stamp set! Anyway, I used the poinsettia stamp from the set and white ink to stamp them. The greeting is also from the set. I just love that particular stamp. I then cut a piece of card stock and embossed it with the all over poinsettia embossing folder and then spread some rock candy crackle paint over it. While the paint was wet I sprinkled some rock candy dry glitter on it. While that was drying I cut the flourish out of white card stock and covered it with Glossy Accents and rock candy glitter. When everything was dry I glued the embossed card down and outlined it with a white gel pen. I wanted to emphasize the Art Deco feel of the tag. I had the white poinsettias in my stash and I glued them down with the flourish underneath. Here are some close-ups.
What inspired me from Linda's tag was her color scheme. She used a chalk board color scheme of black and white. As I said before, I love the Festive Berries ink and stain so I decided to use the red and white instead.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I really appreciate your visits and I'm grateful to all my old and new visitors.
