Tagfest continues....

Dies and ink and stains and images and modeling paste, stamps and stencils and...

This one started out as a tag with modeling paste over a Crafters Workshop stencil. NOTE TO SELF: ink tag before applying modeling paste. OR add pigment to the modeling paste. Not a necessity, just something different to try.

I had gotten out my palette knife and paste and just did up a bunch of tags at one time. A great way to add some texture!
WHICH btw, did you know there is a 'clinical' name for texture addicts?

Thank you Mr. DeMeng for putting a name to my issue......

This image, I just love! I'll have to find the artist/source to give proper credit. I did alter it in PSE with snowfakes, but that was a year ago, and well, I forget.... It is covered with Rock Candy Stickles!

The big blue snowflake behind the tag is from Sizzix. After applying the modling paste and allowing it to dry, I inked the tag with Distress Ink in Broken China and Stormy Sky the heat set. Next sprayed the whole thing with Pewter Radiant Rain, let setup a bit then heat set. It gave a really nice shimmer! The snowflake in the back is done in the same manner, then cut in 1/2 and adhered to the back.

The silver tinsel garland is from Target last year. I LOVE what happens when I hit it with my heat gun.....

This tag is done again with modling paste and the tree bark stencil from Crafter's Workshop.

I inked the tag with Twig Distress Ink, and oversprayed it with Copper mist.

The ornament is a Sizzix die, stamped with acrylic gold Dabber over a Peeled Paint Distress Stain.

And NOEL is a new Tim Holtz die, cut out of a heavy glitter paper  by Recollections. This stuff has great weight, so dosn't need to be propped with another layer for support!

And it's 'sparklelishous!'

Which you could see here IF blogger would JUST ALLOW me to rotate the image (it is right in my camera phone).... frustrating. Just please tilt to the left until I correct this....

This tag uses the BRICKS stencil and modling paste. I wanted it to look like a framed picture over a fireplace.

How'd I do?

The image is from a Christmas collage sheet from Altered Pages.

The 'mantel' was done using Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint.
The 'wallpaper' is stamped with one of Tim Holtz' new Christmas Silhouette stamps, and outlined with a Sharpie White poster paint pen.

Finished off with holly garland, German Scraps I got at Artist and Display and mica!
