This week I decided to play with the Fresh Brewed Bigz die. I'm not a Starbucks addict, but I do like to partake of their seasonal drinks once or twice each season. One of my favorites is Peppermint Mocha which inspired this week's tag. I started with my normal jumbo manila tag and stenciled Texture Paste through the Tim Holtz Christmas stencil. When the texture paste had dried I sprayed the tag with Barn Door and Mowed Lawn distress stains. Once all that was thoroughly dry, using my finger, I rubbed Inka Gold Old Gold all over the tag, on the raised letters, around the, in between them. It wasn't a thick coat, but rather just enough to give it a nice sheen.
The snowflake was cut with the Paper Snowflakes thinlits die set. I used Gold Alcohol Ink Mixative on the jingle bells (started out silver), on the gumdrop (started out clear) and on the gold holly berries (started out shiny gold and I wanted the matte gold to match the other embellishments). The holly leaves were cut from white card stock with the Festive Greenery decorative strip die, colored with Mowed Lawn distress stain and edged with more of the Inka Gold Old Gold. The sentiment is from the new Scribbly Christmas stamp set, stamped in Mowed Lawn distress ink. It was cut freehand, smeared with a bit more Mowed Lawn ink and then edged with more Inka Gold.
That wraps up Week #9. Many thanks to all who are playing along with my challenge. Can't wait to see what you will make this week!
