Twelve Tags of Christmas 2014 Day Two

At Art 'n Soul we are having Make and Takes for Christmas tags, every weekday for 12 days.  We started on December 1st, and Tuesday, December 2nd is my turn!  Please come in and see me and make a tag.  I'm using this stamp set from Penny Black for my tag.

Most Wonderful - 30-255 by Penny Black

Here's the tag you can make for a donation of non-perishable food for the Food Bank or a $1 cash donation for the Food Bank

I stamped the ornament image and the Seasons Greetings sentiment with Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The ornaments were colored with Tombow markers and I used a wet brush dipped in water mixed with Perfect Pearls powder to shade the colors.  The ornament tops were colored with a silver Signo Broad pen, and I flicked Artquest palette mica watercolor all over.  Pretty quick and easy.  The base tag die is unfortunately no longer available from the manufacturer, but I have cut out lots of them!

Materials Used:
Penny Black Most Wonderful clear stamp set 30-255
Srathmore 140# watercolor paper
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Detail Clear embossing powder from JudiKins
Tombows #847, #676, #493
Uniball Signo Broad Silver pen
Perfect Pearls Pearl powder
Artquest Pallette white watercolor
Sizix Tags die, Scallop combo #2  654991

I also made two more tags from this same great stamp set.  These are not make and takes, but they can give you an idea of other tags you can make using this set

This one was made with So Silk Fair Blue paper, and the image was stamped with Versamark Ink and embossed with White Diamond embossing powder from JudiKins.  It has a beautiful sparkle and shine in real life.

On this last tag, the deer image and the sentiment were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Strathmore 140# watercolor paper.  The snowflakes were stamped with Versafine Blue Lagoon ink and all were embossed with Detail Clear embossing powder from JudiKins.

The Deer was colored with Tombow #867, and I moved the color around with a wet brush dipped in water mixed with Perfect Pearls powder.  The speckles were made with Artquest Palette mica watercolor that was flicked onto the tag with a wet brush.  At the end I also added some Waterfall Stickles to the snowflakes.
