I was able to get into my craft room last night and get Tag #10 started. I knew I wanted a white frosty background coupled with gold elements. I started with my normal jumbo manila tag as I always do. I normally make the tag and then back it up with a heavy chipboard so it doesn't curl or bend. This time, I adhered the chipboard backing immediately because I planned to slather it with a blend of gesso and texture paste and it needed the stability right away. Setting the tag aside to dry overnight, I got busy preparing the elements. First, cheesecloth was colored with Tarnished Brass Distress Stain and while wet, sprinkled with Tarnished Brass Distress Glitter. The snowflake was cut with the Layered Snowflake die from white card stock, stamped in gold with the new Wendy Vecchi Text Background stamp and then embossed with the texture fade that comes with the set. Using my finger, I applied Old Gold Inka Gold paste to the embossed high points on the snowflake.
The pine bough and the sentiment were cut with thinlits (Holiday Greens and Holiday Words: Script) dies from white card stock and colored with both Tarnished Brass Distress Stain and rubbed with more Inka Gold. A small laser cut snowflake, also rubbed with Inka Gold, was used to finish off the pine bough.
