I rec'd a Huge Tag book for Christmas from my gf and decided I had to recreate it myself. I just marked the sizes on my 8.5 x 11" chipboard and made my own Hugemongo Tag.
I sponged the BG with white craft ink...once it was dry I sponged with a layer of Shimmer Paint.
Next I went to work on my Maya Road Flourishes (find them here: http://www.embellish-online.com/item_571/Sheer-Flourishes-Clear-Maya-Road.htm). I wanted to test out my Cuttlebug (buy it here: http://www.embellish-online.com/category_33/Cuttlebug.htm) with the flourishes and let me just say the results were fabulous! I added some white ink and Stickles to bring out the details of the embossed flourishes. I used clear adhesive along with a bit of glitter to adhere the flourishes to the Basic Grey paper (Perhaps can be found here:http://www.embellish-online.com/item_332/Perhaps-6x6-Paper-Pad-Basic-Grey.htm). All paper used was from this paper pad except for the white glossy cardstock for the words.
This is just a close-up of the flourishes...the Cuttlebug did an amazing job! I shall have to try this technique more often.
This tag was created for Embellish-It Online....You can check out the DT's creations here:
Baby It's Cold Outside!
I loved the theme for this month! Cold...and it sure was last week but today we have a gorgeous 70 degrees to enjoy! Gotta love this KY weather. ;*)
