So, I took some of the elements and techniques that has used so far to make a simple ten minute tag ( hence the title , as today is Tag 8!) for you to copy if you wish. I love simple, the simpler the better! So with this in mind, I use the Merry Christmas Artistic Stamper stamp, and inked it up using cut n dry felt. Stamp your stamp using black archival ink onto the material part of the felt pad, and using distress ink re-inkers colour up the inked stamp. Then place your stamp back onto the pad ink, and stamp in colour! Keep the felt in a plastic bag, and it should last for ages. If you haven't felt then just ink your stamp using distress inks. I clear embossed the words.
I have to say I cheated here and used the same felt that I used when making his tag no 2!! and it had kept its colour perfectly!
I then inked the tag using Forest Moss , Crushed Olive ( love that name!) and edged it in Barn Red ( my favourite of all the colours!)
You can ink up over the clear embossing with no fear of the embossed image being discoloured.
I stamped the cones from Tim's Winter Sketchbook using the same method.
Add lots of Idea-ology baubles, and a facet. I glued a tiny picture from the Seasonal pad to the back of it with Glossy Accents. I added a few pearls on the bottom too.
There you go a ten minute tag perfect for your presents!
