eh feminine tags 2015 day 10 sketch

I was thrilled to find time to make another tag for the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Challenge. (ok, I made the time, pushed something on my “to do list” aside for ME time!)

For this one, I used the Day 10 Sketch.

12 tags day 10 sketch challenge

I die cut a tag with the Reverse Confetti Gift Card Holder tag die, and die cut a circle (to use as a mask) out of a piece of scrap paper. I taped the mask over the tag, and blended Distress inks (from the bottom, Stormy Sky, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire) onto the tag. I stamped tiny snowflakes with the same colors.  The silver snowflake is a My Favorite Things die, the sentiment is Hero Arts. I did have to touch up around the “G” and the “S” in “Greetings” with a White Signo Pen, it was difficult to see the letters that got stamped on a dark snowflake.

I really love the way the blended circle turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!
