Twelve Tags - Day 8

It's day 8 at The Classroom for The Twelve Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist.  There is some beautiful inspiration from Designers Lisa Adametz and Jill Foster.

Day 8 Nontradtional Color and Texture

I was inspired by the texture on Lisa's tag and the colors on Jill's tag. Watercolored the background with Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Peacock Feathers, dried it with a heat gun.  Made a stencil with a Spellbinders cover plate die, laid it on the tag and added some modeling paste.  While it dried I stamped the poinsettia from Gina K with Versamark and heat embossed with green ep, then watercolored it with Inktense watercolor pencils in pink and purple.  Added some clear Wink of Stella over the color.  Punched and die cut some leaves and arranged around the poinsettia.  Stamped the little joy tag with Memento Sweet Plum and tied it on with some baker's twine.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh your tag is so lovely!! Beautiful use of color, Sue, and super clever of you to use the cover plate die as a stencil. The over-all effect is kind of dreamy. And I just LOVE it. I'm really happy that you enjoyed the tags that Jill and I created For Twelve Days of Tags With a Feminine Twist. <3
