Today I have a Christmas watercolored tag to share that I made for two challenges.
Here are a few photos of how I made my tag. I stamped a text stamp onto Arches Watercolor paper using Archival Jet Black Ink (it's waterproof once it dries)
When the ink was dry, I brushed over the panel with water and then water colored the panel with an burnt orange color and let it dry.
I die cut a tag from the panel and a deer from a patterned paper as well as a piece of matboard. I glued the two deer together to make it more sturdy
I watercolord over the deer with the same color to tone down the white dots a bit and added Small Talk/Occasions stickers. I added 3 tiny wood veneer stars (can you see them?!) and looped a piece of gold tinsel string through the top.
I often send a tag as a Christmas card so the receiver can hang it on their tree!
I'm linking my tag to:
