Hellooooo, and welcome to MCV #30.
Today I am super excited to be joining in as a guest designer with the MCV Design team, who are all playing along with Day 24 of Tracey's "25 Days of Christmas tags" event. MCV is today's sponsor, and there will be some sweet prizes up for grabs over on Traceys blog, "In My Creative Opinion" as well as MCV. So make sure you go and check out the details!
The MCV Tag theme is red and green with a tree element as an option.
Here's my tag:
For this tag I used a holly stamp from the PTI Tiny treats Christmas set. I randomly stamped it on to a tag die cut from Lil' inkers and then used my copics to color them in. I outlined each one with a grey copic so it would make the images stand out more. I also used a white gel pen to accentuate the highlights a bit more. When I was done coloring I added my go to combination, Wink of Stella and glossy accents. It doesn't really show up in this pic but I have a close up below that shows it a little better.
The word die is also from PTI. I cut several from red card stock and glued them together for some dimension and attached it to the front. lastly I used some red satin ribbon and some twine to finish it off.
Here's the close up of the shine:
So, my post was supposed to end here, However I managed to finish another tag I was working on for this occasion. So here is my second tag for today's challenge.
All the products on this tag are from Papertrey Ink. I created the scene with the dies and stamps form Betsy Velmans Make it market kit, Tinsel and tags. The ornament was cut with red and gold cardstock.
Before I love and leave you, I would just like to say a big Thank You to Ardyth for inviting me to play along with the MCV design team, and also to Tracey for organizing the 25 days of Christmas tags event. I have seen so many wonderful tags and have been so inspired to try new techniques. I think you just might be seeing more tags from me after this. ;)
Peace and love.
