PanPastel UK Challenge 12 - Gift Tags

I am entering this tag into the

PanPastel UK Challenge 12 - Gift Tags

I stamped the image onto the tag using Fairy Doodles from Buzzcraft Clear rubber stamp in Memento Ink Cocoa. I coloured the hat, jacket and mittens using PanPastel Permanent Red and the ribbon on the present. The present itself I coloured using PanPastel Diarylide Yellow. I wanted to create a soft dewy image with this tag so to achieve this, I used Dew Drop Brilliance Fast Drying Pigment ink in Platinum Planet and wiped it over the stamped image. Now this effect smudges the PanPastel colours but this is what I wanted to achieve to soften the look. I then used the Dew Drop inks in colours Pearlescent Lavendar and Pearlescent Purple to randomly create a mottled effect at the top of the tag. I also sponged the string too in the same inks. I then used Ranger Stickles in Diamond, Xmas Red and Green to highlight the trim on the hat, jacket and mittens and also the fairy wings. Stickles was used on the trees and also the holly on the present. I used Diamond Stickles below the present to create a shimmery snow effect. Finally embellished around the image with dots of Baby Blue Liquid Pearls and Gems.
Hope you like this Christmas gift tag and thanks for looking,
Merry Christmas,
Lots of love NJ XXX
