I have done a lot of my shopping - I confess a lot of it earlier in the year, by happenschance, not deliberate. I have some left to do but should get through this pretty quickly. I am thinking of wrapping some already and have made some tags - a set of four, although I need many more than that!
The Challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies is to make a Christmas tag! NOT a card - a TAG! The sponsors (yes, there are two) for our final challenge for 2013 are:
Sassy Studio Designs
they are offering 4 digis of the winner's choice
who are offering 5 digis of the winner's choice
WOW - great prizes.
Anyway, I used a digi image from QKR called Santa in the Chimney
I ran the image off four times onto XPress Blending card and used the trusty Copics to colour it up I did all four together to make sure that the colours are pretty much the same across all of them.
Once I had them coloured in I mounted them onto some red card - SU Poppy Parade - and looked around for a tag big enough to take them because I didn't remember to resize them before I began! I got them onto some big Manilla tags from Inkssentials (Ranger). I got the LOTV set called Christmas Grungy and stamped out four different stamps, coloured them up and added some Iridescent Medium to the top to make it all shimmery.
I tried to show the shimmer here - not sure if it works that well
Each tag has washi tape layered up the tag - I have purchased the tape and forgot it was there most of the time but had a sudden light-bulb moment and went to work. There is a mixture of SU tape and other tape. I then added a snowflake from Frenchville, some bling and some ribbon.
So, why not go and have a look at the other tags created by the team a Crafting with Dragonflies, and prepare to be amazed - they are outstanding! Then you can go and make a TAG or a set of TAGS and enter our last challenge for 2013!
