We’ve reached the middle of the week (middle of the work week, anyway), and that means a Mo Manning creation in this little corner of the web.
I’ve made a tag for a Christmas present with the adorable Season’s Greetings image. The tag is 3″ tall, so I printed my image really tiny and colored her up with my Copics. This image isn’t a very detailed one, so shrinking it works fine, and extending the candy cane by adding a few extra lines is also pretty easy.
I added snow with chunky white embossing powder, glued on the corner of a small paper doily and a diecut ticket stub from patterned paper on top of that with some 1 mm foam tape. I stamped a tiny Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment with Scarlet Jewel ink from Papertrey Ink and decided to also add a few snowdrift sprinkles by Little Things from Lucy’s Cards. I love these tiny white clay snowflakes.
Gift tags, by nature, need space for names. I stamped another Norsk Stempelblad AS stamp on another patterned paper ticket stub and mounted it to the back my tag using more of that 1 mm foam tape.
For such a small image, I kind of used a lot of Copics. I didn’t use the BV23 at full strength, however, I used the tip to tip technique with BV20 to add a little extra shading in the corners of the white.
