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.
