PanPastel Challenge Blog – Challenge 12 – Gift Tags


Morning everybody, its time  for this  weeks new challenge over at the PanPastel Challenge Blog this  weeks theme is  Gift Tags and the  prize is  a fantastic  taster  kit of PanPastels  and soft tools from our  sponsor  Your Creativity Store (colours may vary).

Here’s what I came up with for  this theme;


To make the first tag I simply stamped my image on to white card using Perfect Medium, I then coloured it using brown PanPastel, and used a gold metallic marker to fill in the space around the  image and  cut around  the outside edge with scissors. Next I used a screw punch to put a whole in my tag and using tartan ribbon, plastic holly leaves and miniature pine  cones I embellished my tag and used the ends of the ribbon to make a loop.

To make the second tag I cut out my shape using Spellbinders Nestabilities, I punched my hole in the top of  my tag using a screw punch and then I  began stamping, to get the effect I wanted for this tag I took a piece of scrap paper and tore it in  to 3 pieces to use as a mask. I used the straight edges of the paper to mask off everything except the triangle areas I wanted to stamp, then stamped using perfect medium and added colour using PanPastels and sofft tools. I repeated this process over and over using the  different colours, always ensuring that everywhere except the area I  was currently  working on was covered with the papers.

I then stuck a piece of black and silver ribbon across the center of the tag and used more of the same ribbon to make the loop. Finally I added a reindeer embellishment  that had been part of a set of cheap Christmas decorations that I thought would work nicely as embellishments.

Thank you for reading this post and I do hope you will come along to the PanPastel Challenge Blog and join in the fun,  also don’t forget that Your Creativity Store currently has a Christmas sale price and free p&p on PanPastels.

As always I love to  hear any  comments you have.

About craftymonster81

I have always enjoyed arts and crafts of many different kinds and have recently found that card making / paper craft is a real passion for me. I draw / paint alot of my own designs for my cards but also use products from many of the well loved crafty names out there too. I am currently looking for work as an illustrator / craft designer and have now set up a page on this blog called My Artwork Gallery to show some of my work. I love to see your comments on either my artwork or my cards so please feel free to leave any comments you may have and if anyone is interested in any of my artwork please feel free to contact me. Thanks for looking at my blog. Lindsay xx
