Holiday Turtle

August 08, 2017

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this Holiday Tag using the super cute Gerda Steiner Designs Hello Friend Turtle image:

  • color the Gerda Steiner Designs Hello Friend Turtle with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens, Distress Markers and a damp watercolor brush
  • use the My Favorite Things Tag Builder Blueprints 6 die set to cut out a shaker tag - you need a base, a foam layer, a frame and an acetate piece ... the patterned paper is from the Doodlebug Design Fun in the Sun 6x6 paper pad
  • add some Doodlebug Design Sequins before closing the shaker element with double-sided adhesive
  • stamp the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Stamps Many Mini Messages with Versafine (Onyx Black) onto a sentiment strip cut with a die from the My Favorite Things Tag Builder Blueprints 5 set and add a little heart from the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Hoppy stamp set
  • as a last step thread three strings of twine through the hole of the tag

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,

I used a cloud stencil and some Distress Inks to create the sky background - then used some post it tape to give a clear line so I could sponge the grass - again...
