My schedule & my mojo have not been cooperating this week to finish up the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist. I was struggling a bit with an idea for the Color Challenge for Tag number eleven.
They even provided a lovely picture for inspiration.
I ultimately took my somewhat literal inspiration from Carolyn Peeler's tag on the front of her card.
I started by picking my four ink colors (I only used one shade of mint).
I started with the Mint, followed by Mauve, Taupe and Grey inking portions of the My Favorite Things Typewriter Text Background stamp. I also sprayed some water after inking to add a bit more blending to the colors. I didn't want to overlap too much and end-up with mud. (And yes, you close observers, I did stamp my image upside down ... thankfully in this case it didn't matter since I was going to die cut from the ivory cardstock).
I die cut Ellen Hutson's Concertina Tag from my stamped background and then again from Taupe (aka light kraft) cardstock. I die cut a third time from Mint cardstock to cap the top of my tag.
I finished with Grey Sequins, Mauve Gems and Mint Holly leaves together with my die cut sentiment.
