I've been getting extremley inky making some new christmas themed tags to show you all!!
First of all I made lots of tag backgrounds using the Dylusions Ink Sprays and decorating using Dylusions Stencils & Dylusions Paints. I applied the paint through the stencils using the Tim Holtz Blending Tool.
I quite often stamp out pages of images onto either mix media card stock or journal pages and then spend a night sat cutting them all out while watching T.V etc... its very therapeutic!
Here they are cut out, when cutting I like to leave a little border around the black outline.
Next I spent time placing them on the tags & journal pages, playing around mixing all the different stamps together. I love using the Christmas trees for reindeer bodies!
After deciding where I wanted to place all the stamped out images I stuck them down using double sided tape and Collage glue stick.
I have used a mix of Christmas stamps & non Christmas stamps, here is a list of the stamps I have used;
I hope you enjoy them & they help get you into the Christmas spirit... theres plenty more Christmas themed samples & decorations to come. Tune in tomorrow to see what they look like decorated & finished.
