I wanted to do a quick post for the 12 tags before I get into my Christmas card making frenzy.
So confession time...I shop a LOT. You can't go anywhere without seeing the chalkboard craze in stores. I was so excited when Tim Holtz did a chalkboard technique tag in his Creative Chemistry 102 class. I have had that frosted crystal embossing powder for years. I've always found it to be quite tempermental to work with. It's so easy to overheat it and lose the effect it's supposed to give, but practice practice. I still haven't mastered it, but I'm getting there.
I have this great chalk pastel set from Lyra (again I have had it for years) so I pulled it out and added some color to the tag. Here's the end result ...
And here's a fun card I made while I had all the supplies out on my desk. (Die cuts are from Memory Box)
Hop on over to Tim's blog post for the great tutorial, especially the tip for using Frosted Crystal EP.
Thanks for surfing by today, until next time...
