Indigo Christmas!

Hi Everyone

Today I have made a Tag for the Indigo Blu 'Christmas In July' Challenge and I have to say that I have dug into my craft stash and come out with some items I haven't used in years!

I firstly die cut a white tag from Tim Holtz Alterations, then stamped in Versamark the Blazing Poppies and heat set with WOW  Platinum embossing powder.

I then sprayed over the embossing with Moon Glow Glitz Spritz - Moon Endless Sky and heat dried. 

I then used a Crafters Workshop mini hexagons stencil and used this with blue distress inks around the edges.

I then got some masking tape and stuck this onto the tag in the top right and bottom left corners folding it and making it bobbly. 

I then dripped hot glue over the masking tape making squiggly lines.  I let this cool and then added white acrylic paint over the top of the masking tape and glue.  Once this was dry I sprayed Moon glow again over the same.  Once this was dry I touched the top of the glue and masking tape with weathered wood distress ink and 
on the top of that added Crafty Notions Sky Blue rainbow glaze.

I then stamped out onto parchment paper the stamp a few times in Versamark and heat set with WOW bright white embossing powder.  I then turned the flowers over and used an embossing stylus with a sponge pad and lightened the flowers in places.  I then cut these and the butterfly out and decoupaged them onto the platinum embossed outline.

I am entering this into the following Challenges:


  1. Lovely tag Sue, I like how you've given a real icy look to the blazing poppies. Great challenge entry. Thanks for joining in with the Forever 21 Challenge ......Linda xx
