25 Days of Christmas tags 2020 - Day14

Hello, and welcome! Today is day 14 of the10th annual 25 days of Christmas tags event hosted by the lovely Tracey McNeely.  I look forward to this every year. As you can see, my blog exists for the sole purpose of participating in this event. 😂 

Head on over HERE to find out all the details of how you can participate and win some of the amazing prizes that are up for grabs. 

Todays sponsor are the masters of cuteness, the ever popular... LAWN FAWN, so consider yourself warned. 😉

While brainstorming some ideas for todays tags I came across a bookmark die and it reminded me of a miniature version of the current slimline cards that everyone is making. It then occurred to me that books are usually very popular Christmas gifts and that's when it hit me... Bookmark tags! The icing on top is that it is environmentally friendly too. Instead of it getting tossed out it can be used for years to come. That's a win in my book. (see what I did there?😉)

Anyhow... moving on to the tags. I used the ~Over The Mountain~ and ~Snow Globe Scenes~ stamps sets to make these. After stamping the scenes I masked off the mountains and ink blended the skies. I tried to make each one look as if it were at a different time of day. I also tried to make the one on the far right look like the Aurora Borealis. I am not crazy about how it turned out but I am inspired enough to want to give it another try. Once the skies were done I went to work colouring in all the images with Copic Markers. I used a Wow embossing pen and some snow embossing powder to add some snow to the mountain caps and snow drifts. I added some sentiments, ribbon, twine and bells and I was done! 

I hope you enjoyed my tags and thank you for stopping by.
