Christmas Robin Tag

Rachel made this beautiful Christmas tag with our CHRISTMAS ROBIN stamp set.

[Tutorial] I know many crafters have already started their card making in time for the special season. I just love this new ‘Christmas Robin’ stamp set as it’s perfect for those Christmas crafty makes.

First of all I sprayed a pre-made tag with ‘Peacock Feathers’, ‘Salvaged Patina’ and ‘Tumbled Glass’ distress spray stain. Before this dried I dabbed as much as possible off with a piece of kitchen towel to create a dappled look. I then sprinkled water over the surface to create a droplet effect. Once dried I stamped the speckles from the ‘Christmas Robin’ set in the background using ‘Peacock Feathers’ distress ink. I then added the sentiment ‘Sending Love This Christmas’ in Versamark before embossing with Wow superfine clear embossing powder. This all created a subtle background for the robins.

On a separate piece of card I then stamped the rest of the elements from the set in Versafine Clair ‘Nocturne’ black ink. These were then heat embossed using Wow superfine clear embossing powder once again. The images were then coloured in using ‘Peacock Feathers’ and ‘Spiced Marmalade’ distress ink as well as Stabilo Aquacolor watercolour pencils. These were then fussy cut out and stuck into position on the background using Cosmic Shimmer acrylic glue or 3D mounts.

Once all the elements were dry I mounted the tag onto black card and white linen card then added a white coloured ribbon. A perfect tag for adding to those Christmas gifts later this year. Rachel ♡
