Ellen Hutson’s 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2017 Challenge

It is December, so time to head on over to Ellen Hutson’s blog for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2017 Challenge!

I chose to create a tag based on the sketch from Day 8. Here is the sketch:

 

I was also inspired by the tag on Day 5 made by Eloise Blue – the critter and the ink blended background.

My vision – a night sky background, a fox sitting on a fallen tree with the moon rising behind. I counted my fallen tree and the sentiment as the vertical stripes.

For my background, I blended 3 Distress Inks – Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire on Bristol card stock. I heat set the colors, and then flicked on some sparkly white watercolor from the Kuretake Gansai Tambi set.

The fox was colored with Copic markers, and cut out first with the circle die. Then, I partially die cut the fox, to allow the fallen tree to be put underneath the tail.

I added a sentiment and fussed with the ribbon for an hour.

Thanks to Ellen Hutson for having this challenge again this year – the grand prize to a random winner is $150 gift certificate to the store! (Oh, great Random Number Generator in the sky, PLEASE generate my number!)

Watercolored Ombre with Snowflakes Seasons Greetings Card

My Kuretake watercolors were on my table for another project last week, and I played around with watercoloring over my Neat and Tangled stencil, playing with an ombre look. I actually painted it light side at the top, but when I was putting this together, I thought the darkest blue needed to be at the top (sky), and the lightest at the bottom (snow).

Supplies: Stamp – Hero Arts, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Silver Mirror, ink – VersaMark, watercolors – Kuretake Gansai Tambi, stencil – Neat and Tangled, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), My Favorite Things (snowflakes), embossing powder Ranger Silver Pearl, organdy ribbon – Offray.
