It's challenge #23 here at Papercraft Star and this marks the last week of projects made with products from our November sponsor, Babette Switzer of Kraft Outlet. I have really enjoyed working with her fabby "krafty" goodies.
For my project this week I created a Christmas tag. The base is made of Kraft Outlet chipboard. A layer of kraft cardstock cut the same dimensions was run through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and glued on top of the chipboard. I used a sponge and some gold Rub-n-Buff to add a little shimmer to the embossed image and added a little Glossy Accents to hold some gold microbeads onto the leaves.
The edges of the tag were inked with Versamark and embossed with Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder and then I brushed a light coat of Picket Fence Distress crackle paint over that. Next came a little Diamond Dust for a pretty border all around.
The image is a digi stamp from Fred, She Said Designs. I watercolored it with watercolor pencils and distress inks, covered it in Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint and covered the berries with Glossy Accents.
I punched out a few small flowers, edged them with Versafine white ink, and added some red adhesive pearls.
The bottom border was punched out of designer paper and I backed it with some more of the Kraft cardstock edged in the Picket Fence paint. A few white pearls and some twill tape, fibers, and some of Babette's yummy Baker's Twine finish off the tag.
