HCPC 3543 - Winter Season PreCut Set
HCPC 3507- Timeless Amour Background PreCut Set
Ornate Gateway Die
Daphne Paper Collection

StazOn (Jet black),Glossy Accents, Gesso, Glimmer Mist (patina and jack frost) sponge, and haeting tool.

I used a 7 1/2 by 3 1/2 chipboard base to make my tag, using glossy accents I adhere paper on both sides from the Beautiful Daphne Paper Collection and set it aside with three heavy books on top so as it dries the chipboard will dry nice and flat for me. I used a sponge to gently dab gesso to the front side of the tag as I love the texture gesso gives to the surface and also to prepare it for the glimmermist. When the Gesso is  dry I used the Timeless Amour Background stamp and StazOn jet black ink to make my background and started playing with the glimmer mists, I prayed the patina color first and used my heat tool to dry the tag and than I used the jack frost mist and dried it with heat tool, you can go back and add more if you please but for me that was perfect. I used the winter season precut set stamps and the stazon jet black ink to stamp it on my tag and when back to add gesso with a sponge. Use the Ornate Gateway die and when cut out dab gesso with a sponce to the front and back of gates and adhere them to the sides of the tag, I added the top part of the gates to the top of the tag and make a bow with seam bindding and a pearl to the center of the bow, and using "Winter Wonderland" stamp from the Winter season precut set collection , stamp the centiment above the gates. I LOVE the way this tag turned out and it will be perfect for Christmas!! Thank you for joining me and I do hope you have enjoyed this tutorial :)
