Hi there! I have another post for the 12 Tags of Christmas celebration and contest going on over at Ellen Hutson over the next several days! Today’s theme is Deck the Halls, featuring beautiful artwork from Sandy Allnock. For my tag today, I used the beautiful Mondo Holly stamp set to do some no-line coloring. Let’s get started with the details!
To start, I used the Gemini Jr and Foil Press to create a festive green and red foil frame. I then trimmed a backer of white Copic-friendly cardstock and stamped the Mondo Holly using Ink On 3’s Fadeout Ink, then did some no-line coloring using Copic markers.
Once I’d finished coloring, I stamped a greeting from the Essentials By Ellen Retro Holiday Greetings using Intens-ified Black ink in the corner of the Copic-colored panel.
I punched a hole in the top left corner, then threaded a loop of red and white twine to create a hanger for the tag.
Well, that’s all for me today! I hope you’ll check out the challenge and all of the fantastic inspiration to be had over at the Ellen Hutson blog. (Psst-there are prizes to be had!) Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
