Use Ribbon, Twine or Lace - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 4th of August, 2017

Can you believe that it is already August! This year, as usual has flown by - lucky I have been keeping up with my Christmas Cards, although most of the time I find I do not want to give them away, so I have a mad dash to do something else!

Anyway, on to this fortnight's challenge at Winter Wonderland blog.
This time we are hosted by the lovely Christine, who would like us to "use ribbon, twine or lace" on our Christmas projects.

So hopefully this project I will actually give away at the end of the year, as it is so easy to make! Also, I can keep them as tags, or I can add the tags to a card for a more complete look, similar to these two cards here and here.

So here are two tags from a series of my Christmas Tags using Power Poppy stamps:

Here is a close up of the Snowman tag:

 Here is a close of the Tree in a Cup tag:

The Snowman from Let's Chill has been digitally printed on watercolour paper, cut out with my Silhouette Cameo and then coloured with Distress Markers, but I have no idea which colours! (I have a book that I write my colour combinations, but I don't always keep it up-to-date - I'll have to do better!!)

I have stamped the Tree in a Cup from Cozy Cupfuls Stamp Set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on to X-Press It card, fussy cut it and then coloured it with the following Copic Markers:
  • greens - YG00, YG61, YG63, YG67
  • reds - R22, R24, R27, R29
  • browns - E40, E41, E43, E44
  • greys - W0, W1, W3
  • gold - gold Spica pen
  • glitter - clear Wink of Stella

Finally I have adhered the coloured images to red tags from my stash (bought long ago!) using foam squares and rounds.

The spotted evergreen ribbon tied in a bow is from Anita's Everyday Ribbons, also from my stash.

I am going to do some more tags and so will add another post!
