Happy Hellos Everyone:
It’s Wednesday already! Can you believe it? I hope your ‘Hump Day’ has kicked-off to a fabulous start. I have created a list of all the things that I would like to accomplish this week. To let you in on just a few things, (1) I need to complete my personal Christmas cards and get them in the mail ASAP—before they become Happy New Year’s cards; (2) I need to make a few birthday cards—for some reason, I have managed to acquire several jingle-babies in my life; (3) I also need to finish some of the projects I’m preparing for the NEW Scraps of Color E:spire Magazine. All I’ll say about that is you’re in for treat. However, in order for you to receive your treat you need to get over to SOC and get your free subscription before the free goes away. (4) Lastly, I want to show you my lasted Tim Holtz inspired tag. As I mentioned yesterday, I do not have half of the things required to make the inspirational tag, but I have inspiration. So, once again, I improvised.
One might agree I went totally to the left wing with this tag. That is, I tried to capture the true relevance of the holiday season. To begin I tinted the tag with two shades of brown Tim Holtz’s Distressing Inks. I used my Hero Arts musical note stamp to setup the background. I embossed Silent Night from Impression Obsession on top of the music notes. Then I inked a three wise men stamp from Stampendous. Half a wreath was stamped in opposing corners with SU Early Espresso. Scattered snowflakes were embossed into the background; diamond studs flourishes were tinted with Copic Markers; the focal sentiment, ‘Jesus is the First Gift of the Season’ Stampendous stamp was stamped and embossed onto the wise men. Lastly, three cardboard crowns were painted and coated in Glossy Accents.Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back soon!
