Baby's First Christmas Tag
Here's one more tag using the adorable Not-So-Helpful Christmas Penguins from Scrap N' Dipity. She's such a cutie, she had to be pink and I kept thinking how sweet for a Baby's first Christmas. I made her for the 12 Days of Christmas celebration at the Markers! Papers! Digis! FB Group but added all the sparkle to join the Scrap N' Group November Glitter Challenge (which happens to start mid-month so you still have 'til Dec 15th to enter).
The various textures I've used on the penguin and background are a little hard to see, so here's another view. I paper pieced the stocking with digital paper from Gecko Galz (that I've shrunk down to mini size) and added flocking to the toe and Flower Soft to the cuff. I colored the penguin with Copics and added a sheet of Be Creative Tape so I could then dust her with microfine glitter, but I added her eyes and fussy cut little beak beforehand. She's popped on a panel of glitter lace.
That panel was made with a large piece of open lace was adhered to another piece of Be Creative Tape. I first applied pink glitter to the openings in the lace, then carefully lifted it off after dusting off the excess. Then I sprinkled on the microfine clear over the whole piece and it stuck to where the lace had been, leaving the pattern. It was a larger piece, but it had been on my crafting table for several years so I decided it was time to use it and cut it to fit the tag. The trim was pinched with a MS punch, also left on my table from a previous project and I used silver border stickers and hearts to finish it off. Although I'm thrilled to have used up some scraps, it doesn't begin to put a dent in the mounds of stuff I have EVERYWHERE. LOL
I'm also adding this to the DL.Art November Linky Challenge, the Outlawz Twisted Thursday ATG Challenge, Holly Jolly Christmas Anything but a Card, Tuesday Throwdown Make a Tag, In the Pink Cute and Cuddly and Dream Valley Winter Animals.
