Fancy Friday - December 2015 Edition
December 17, 2015
Hello and welcome back! My fancy friends and I are back with some NEW fancy friends too! These are a group of past and current Artisans that have become fast friends thru the Artisan journey. Each month on the last Friday, we will bring you new challenges of all kinds (color,sketch, stamp focus, etc)! This month and next will be one week early due to the holidays. You might have just arrived from Krista Frattin's blog.
This month we are having fun with last minute fancy Christmas tags! I decided to use one of my favorite alphabets to get this party started, along with a modern color combo. I was inspired by this gift bag that I saw at Target.
I adapted the colors to Watermelon Wonder, Melon Mambo, Cucumber Crush, Tempting Turquoise and Night of Navy, and I left off the gold.
Here are some close-ups of the tags. I varied the height of the stamped letters to fit them onto the tags, and overlapped them to add some interest to the design. The tags are 2" wide and 4 1/4" long.
I used the Cucumber Crush 1" Dotted Lace Trim and the Watermelon Wonder 1" Dotted Lace Trim, trimmed the corners of the tag and punched a 1/8" hole for the ribbon.
Well, that is all for me today. Next stop on the hop is Allison Okamitsu with some more fanciness for you!
