25 Days of Christmas Tags (Hello Bluebird)

Hello crafty friends, today I'm here again to participate in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. Today's inspiration comes from Hello Bluebird

I started off with stamping out my images from the Snow Play stamp set, colouring them in with Copics and cutting them out using the coordinating dies

(Copic Markers Used: YG03, YG23, YG67 / B01, B02, B16 / W3, W5, W7 / R17, R24, R29 / Y13, Y18, Y38 / W0, W2, W4 / E53, E57, E59 / E50, E51, E53 / YR12, YR16 / BG11, BG23, BG49 / RV13, RV25, RV19 / R000, R30 / C00, C0, 0 / C7 / W00, W1)

Next I die cut four tags from watercolour cardstock and four from regular white cardstock. I used the Hill and Dale dies on the plain white tags for the snow at the bottom of each tag. I then stamped the 'Season's Greetings' sentiment from the Snow Play stamp set onto the tags and white heat embossed them.

I then ink blended Evergreen Bough Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks onto each of them. I flicked some water on top, picked it up with a paper towel and dried it off with a heat tool. I added foam tape onto the backs of all the snow drifts and images ands adhered them into place. 

Lastly I threaded through some twine at the tops of the tags and tied a bow using some hemp cord. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Check out Tracey's blog for more information as well as more inspiration. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon.
