Since most of January has already passed, I didn't do a new year's tag like Tim did; instead I made the coming addition to our family the theme of my tag. For the background, I used Barn Door and Spiced Marmalade Distress Paint, and misted with Pumice Stone Distress Spray Stain. The combination created a rich and distressed background.
I am still waiting for my supplies which are in the container, but luckily I did have Chit Chat stickers. I love them and made sure they made their way into the suitcase. The shading technique Tim did around the words is real cool. I also added a die cut flag that I happened to find in a bag of scraps (I had tossed two bags of scraps into the suitcase too).
I only had Rock Candy glitter at hand, so I painted all the plastic parts with Peacock Feathers and coated two of them with Rock Candy. The number was mounted on a painted, sanded and inked circle from the Prize Ribbons die.
My spritzer tool is also in the container, so after splattering with white paint, I made irregular dots with a gold Krylon marker.
Thank you so much for looking!
