Hombre Christmas Tag Card August 16, 2014

Here’s a creation that combines a technique from the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class as well as the image from the DigiStamps4Joy progressive challenge.


For this project, I started with the two tags.  I stamped them with VersaMark ink and then used Ranger’s Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder on it.  It did a fantastic job on the tiny text – I honestly wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but it worked.  The Merry Christmas tags are a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly.  I used Fired Brick, Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, and Bundled Sage Distress Inks to create the different layers of color on the tags.  The digital image is colored using Prismacolor colored pencils and Gamsol for blending.  The card base is Bazzill cardstock that I debossed using a snowflake embossing folder.  I used the ink blending tool to add some Weathered Wood Distress Ink around the edges of the card because the stark white was too bright.
