Christmas tag tutorial;

 Here we go peeps with a quick tag tutorial, from The Resident bit of Glamour.

She started with a ready inked tag.

Added Fresh Lime paint with a blending tool through the Holly stencil.

Inked up the Merry Christmas stamp with Black Archival Ink.

And stamped all across the tag

Stamped the bow onto some red inked card.

Cut two strips of (already inked) red card from the stash and stencilled snowflakes using the Postbox red paint on a blending tool

Added the strips to the tag and cut out the bow.

Placed the bow on to the tag and voila!!!

Gorgeous and so simple

Love this next one that she did using our blocking technique as a background.

All the images are coloured using the Dylusions inks in water brushes

Well done Jay, I think they are gorgeous.

Enjoy xx

Great tags! I always make a bunch of tags for the BC Children's Hospital and these would be perfect, especially the gift one. I know what I'm going to try to do next weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!
