I decided to try my hand at two monochromatic tags...
The first uses the gorgeous Christmas tree from Victorian Christmas and a sentiment from Christmas Song.
I used some lovely paper from Authentique's "Festive" Collection. The pretty trees and scrolls in the design made me think of the stamped image itself. I had such a hard time with my own sketch! Didn't know what to put in the right corner that wouldn't steal the show. I decided a fussy cut sentiment would do the trick. This tree is so much fun to embellish! I used a combination of red adhesive pearls, Ruby Red Liquid Pearls, and a red gem.
For my second card, I used a snowflake and sentiment from Victorian Christmas...
I used more Nordic print paper, this one from the "Christmas Wish" collection by My Mind's Eye. I could NOT add a little "doodad" in the corner on this one! I just loved how clean and elegant it turned out and decided it best to leave it ALONE!
Thank you SO much to everyone at Skipping Stones Design for allowing me to be part of their team this month. It's been a blast!
