Hi there fellow Colour Blast lovers, Melinda here with you today sharing some fun Christmas tags I made for my family Secret Santa gift exchange!
I seriously had a lot of fun putting these together and just playing so I really cannot recommend highly enough JUST PLAYING! It's so fun and you never know, you may make your most fave thing ever!
If you would like to see my process click on the link below for my process video, otherwise read on for my step-by-steps!!
First up I cut some tag shapes with my Silhouette Cameo (you could do the same with either a die, some pre-cut tags or even hand cut your own tags) onto plain white cardstock. I used my sketch pens and I font I LOVE to write out everyone's name knowing I wanted to water colour them.
I left the tags attached to my mat so that I could easily keep track of all the bits and took it over to my work space and got to work.
First up some grey chalk ink with a Darkroom Door background stamp (Christmas Script) randomly stamped across all the tags.
I then grabbed the gorgeous Peacock Colour Shimmer Dust, added a little to an empty ephemera pack with a little water and used a little paint brush to colour the names on each of the tags.
I used some of the left over mix to add splatters across all the tags and when that was dry moved onto the colour paste.
I grabbed a little stencil from my stash and my Steel Colour Paste and again, added that randomly through the stencil across all the tags.
I knew I wanted to include pops of red so I grabbed out some packaging and my Love Colour Spray to do the trusty packaging technique to add some pops of red.
I used the nozzle to apply some splatters of the Love across all the tags as well.
I decided to add a flair to each tag so grabbed a few from my stash along with some red sewing thread to make a little nest for each flair.
After they were all attached I decided I wanted a little more sparkle so grabbed my Steel Colour Shimmer Spray and added some splatters with the nozzle.
A couple of finishing touches including red and white twine and some sequins and 8 tags ready to go!
I'm really pleased with how these turned out and best of all I really did have a lot of fun creating them!
I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas Day celebrations and perhaps some of you even found some Colour Blast goodies under the tree?!
I can't wait to share my next post in the New Year so until then, stay safe, celebrate in style and get messy!
