Tracey McNeely puts on a fabulous event on her blog every November... "25 Days of Christmas Tags", with all kinds of wonderful inspiration... and encouragement to play along. I was inspired by Tracey's pretty purple ink blended tags with white embossed snowflakes on Day One, and decided to make a whole bunch of my own:
I used a pretty Pearl embossing powder from WOW, using three larger snowflakes, and then filled in the empty spaces with a couple of smaller flakes:
Here is my blue/purple strip... I started out trying a few different purple ink blends... and settled on a blue/purple mix of three colours sponged randomly on my strip of paper. Even though I wasn't thrilled with the colours that I started out with, they ended up being really gorgeous tags:
And here is my blue/green version:
The strips were 3 1/2" x 12", and I cut them each into 6 pieces... to end up with 12!
Each piece was mounted to a slightly larger piece of grey cardstock, and I added the sentiment with some pop dots. I'm not sure what I'll do yet about twine or ribbon... so am just leaving them like this for now.
