Play Date Cafe 110 - Gift Tag


Welcome to a new week at The Play Date Cafe!  These bright colors just said "Christmas" to me.  With  stamps I received from our sponsor, DRS Designs (thank you!)

I created a gift tag:


I stamped the image of "I Scene A Stocking" and colored it with Copics.  I tried to stick closely to the colors in the challenge, but needed to add some neutrals or my floor and mantel would look weird, not to mention the dog.


The ornaments on the tree were dabbed with Ruby Red Liquid Pearls (thanks, Andrea!), and the candle flames and star on the tree have gold Smooch Ink on them.


The cuff of the stocking has a texture you can feel thanks to DecoArt Snow-Tex.  I applied it with a popsicle stick, and while it was still wet, I sprinkled glitter on top.  Love it!


On the back of the tag, I used a DRS Filigree Star and sentiment.

I know it's a super busy time of year with Christmas approaching, but we hope you will play with us this week.  There's a great prize being offered by DRS Designs; go check it out at The Play Date Cafe.

Thanks so much for your visit!

Colleen

Great tag! Your coloring is wonderful - the bricks on the fireplace even look sort of 3-D or realistic! Love all the fun touches and that cuff is great! Love the texture with that paint stuff on the ornaments as well. That had to take a bit of time picking and chosing all the fun details and how to make them stand out but all yet work together wonderfuly! Love it!

Well, now, that's a cute little tag with a charming Christmas scene! Love the dimension you added with the Liquid Pearls and the stocking fluff. We have a pellet stove inserted in our fireplace with a rug and two recliners flanking it. The dogs like to snooze on the rug just like this little feller. Cozy!
