I'm really beginning to enjoy making tags. I think of them as little bits of art.
This reindeer Christmas tag was first inked with red and black along the edges. Then I embossed it and applied green paint with a brayer.
Previously I had embossed the tag and then added the inked edges but I experimented with adding the ink before embossing. This technique allowed the "valleys" between the raised parts to show more color from the ink.
The reindeer and tag were cut using the eclips. The embossed texture is from a Tim Holtz Texture Fade.
