Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter “X”. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “X” element will be featured in their post.
The letter “X” is a difficult letter to come up with paper, stamp or embellishment as there is only a limited number of words which begin with the letter “X”. So I had to get a bit creative…. We are heading into the holiday season and since Christmas is often abbreviated X-Mas, I thought this would be perfect. What would make great gifts for X-mas presents but a bottle of wine. Yes if you follow my blog or this hop then this will sound familiar as I designed a wine tag for the letter “W”. Well here is another one I designed. I have to say I love this concept and you will be seeing more.
To created the soft color of the polar bear I used a bit of reindeer with a blending pen. It created a softer look than using the alcohol marker which was the look I was going for. You could use watercolor pencils too but my blues did now match the way I wanted.
For this tag I used the following products:
- Paper pack~ Snowhaven
- Cardstock ~ Daisy White
- Stamp Set ~ Polar Bear Holiday C1557
- Shimmer Trim ~ Red
- Ink/re-inkers~ Black Momento, Glacier, Ruby and Whisper
