I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.
The sponsor for Day 25 was Hello Bluebird. This is quite a new company that has some really cute critter stamps! I have to be really strong whenever I see their product as I’d love to get a set, but I know I’d probably just look at it as I don’t tend to use many cutesy images.
There was so much inspiration from the designers. I particularly loved Francesca’s CAS pom-pom tags, but unfortunately didn’t have anything suitable in my supplies (HOW?? I HAVE SO MUCH STUFF!!), so chose Caly’s fabulous pink and purple tag as my inspiration.
I started off by embossing snowflakes from the Simon Says Stamp Lots of Snowflakes set and a sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp/Avery Elle Stamptember 2016 collaboration. I then blended the same distress oxide inks that Caly used (Abandoned Coral and Wilted Violet) over the tag. I rubbed the whole tag with a cloth to remove any ink from the snowflakes and then added a few splatters of water.
Thanks for stopping by!
