I started with a tag that contains two other tags. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and Prima color bloom for the background in the main tag, enhancing with iridescent embossing powder while still wet. Then die cut two Spellbinders Opera tags, blending some Distress inks and partially heat embossing with gold tinsel powder. After this, I white heat embossed the little bird from Flora & Fauna, using heat resistant acetate. Did the same to the word Joy, this time using black EP. Mounted the Opera tags with foam adhesive, finishing with a puffy sticker flowers, and some crinkle ribbon.
For my second work, I did something very simple, but effective. I white heat embossed some flowers and leaves from the Floral Happy Holidays Set, colored with a few Zig real brush markers, and used them to make some pretty gift wrapping. Added the recipient’s initial, a repeated sentiment, and some white spatter. Next step will be mass producing this design for my Christmas gifts, as I was left with many colored flowers, birds and Holiday greenery :).
