Merry Christmas 42

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, December 8, 2013 @ 10:01 PM | , ,

Hi there! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! It was a little chilly here in the desert which makes for the perfect hiking weather :) Today we are celebrating Scott's (DH) birthday ~ I think he turned 29 AGAIN ;) It's Monday so that means it's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge is all about Tissue Paper!

I was inspired to create a few tags featuring delicate tissue paper die cut snowflake rosettes.
I covered a couple of die cut tags using tissue paper. For the first tag, I added texture and design using a Flourish stencil and modeling paste. Once dry, I colorized using Broken China and Crushed Olive Distress Inks. I embellished the tag with a beautiful tissue paper die cut snowflake rosette and a Fanciful button.
I completed the tag with a sentiment from Simon Says Clear Stamps Holiday Labels:
The second tag is similar yet very different! For texture and design, I used the Mini Harlequin Template and modeling paste. Once dry, I colorized using Spun Sugar and Broken China Distress inks. I embellished the tag with a beautiful tissue paper die cut snowflake rosette and a Fanciful button.
I completed the tag with a sentiment from Simon Says Clear Stamps Holiday Labels:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you like my tags!
Be Sweet ;)
