Day 2 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Day’s of Christmas Tags event this year.

The sponsor for Day 2 was Newton’s Nook. I love Newton so I had a lot of choice when it came to choosing supplies for this tag! The inspiration tags were fabulous – there were so many that I could have chosen for today, but as soon as I saw Larissa Heskett’s tag, I knew I had to use that as my inspiration! I loved the background she did and was so pleased to see that she had explained the technique on her blog post.

Here is my take. I stamped an older Newton’s Nook image and then masked it off to work on the background. Following Larissa’s instructions, I took a stencil (the one I used was by Altenew) and inked over it with various distress inks before applying a layer of versamark. I then added clear embossing powder before blending some distress oxide and distress ink over it. So happy with the way it turned out! I will be using this technique again!

Anyway, I coloured Newton and his snowman with Twinkling H2o’s and then added a piece of ribbon to finish off the tag.

Thanks for stopping by!
