Tag! You're It!

Have you heard Loll is hosting a 12 Tags of Christmas challenge right now?  Perfect timing since I've been using tags to practice my mixed media techniques.

For this tag I coated mixed media card stock with Inka Gold then smeared on some glass bead gel.  I love that stuff--so glittery and bumpy.  (Strangely, Frankie like the gel too so I had to hide the tag while it dried.    He's such a weird cat!)   I die cut the gold snowflakes and used the inner waste portion of the large one to create the snowflake in the upper right corner.  Waste not, want not.  I wanted the sentiment to really pop so I embossed it in white on black.  A spray of gold thread at the top and done!

The Details: 
Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflake dies, Glossy Accents, Faber Castell glass bead gel, Inka Gold Metallic Rub, Mama Elephant Jolly Merry sentiment

  6. Fabulous use of the Inka Gold and glass bead gel! I'm with you on the "waste not, want not" - I'm always doing similar things when I punch or die cut!


Thanks so much for your comments. I really enjoy and appreciate them all!
