Christmas Tag.....

Good Monday morning everyone!  I discovered I still had some embossing paste from Dreamweavers and I also went a purchased a jar of Liquitex Moulding Paste because it dries white; my other is translucent.  I found some old brass stencils in my stash and went to work playing with both of these mediums!

This morning I have made a square gift tag for the Christmas season.  I used the medium on watercolor paper to make sure it was thick enough to hold the paste.  I also used a glue pad to gently swipe across the package when it had dried and sprinkled glitter across to give it a pretty glow.  My sentiment stamp is from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3429 Wisement Ornament PreCut Set.


I just noticed the paper had some places in the fiber where it is not totally white.  I will be more careful about picking out my scrap pieces for my next project.  I save all different sizes of this paper and try and use each and every bit.  In real life you don't even notice this difference, but the camera misses nothing it seems.

Well you get the idea here, and I will be doing more pieces using this medium...I think I like it very much!

I'm off to get my second cup of coffee.  Hope your day is a good one even though it is Monday.  It is 51 degrees here this morning.  It definitely feels like Fall!

This is just stunning! I love the texture and the elegant glitter you added. I also like the little imperfections in the paper, Glenda. It adds character. You know how every Persian rug has a flaw built into the design? I think this is absolutely perfect!
