Now I know most people are shaking there heads at me right now, but I love Christmas and it will be here sooner than we think. Every year I try to make my own gift tags, One year I an determined to make enough.
I recently treated myself to some of Ken Oliver's Colour Bursts, I have seen them in action before and had a little play with a friends and it never ceases to amaze me how bright and fun they are to play with.
I cut the tags from different pieces of card from my stash, to see how the colour burst would react on them. These were mostly a pearl and a coated card stock, on which I sprinkled a small amount of the power and sprayed with water. The first and second ones were only sprayed a little, the third and fourth were quiet heavily sprayed with water.
I liked the backgrounds just as they were. So I just stamped and embossed
an Icicle from The Artistic Stamper with Black embossing powder over the top and edged them with Distress Ink.
