Special Delivery!

Hello, it's Jan again!

(Please scroll down to see my latest DCWV layout!)

Today, I made a tag-turned-card!
Sometimes, you start with a concept, and it just grows from there!
I used the recently released Stampendous,
on kraft cardstock.
First, I stamped and heat-embossed the image onto the kraft tag.
The image was then colored using watercolor pencils.

The sentiment is from the set,  "Christmas Wishes",
and was stamped and also heat-embossed.
The edges of the tag were inked with Tim Holtz Christmas inks,
and the kraft card mat and the pattern paper edges inked in Momento, Cocoa Brown.
I love the vintage look of these colors!
What set the whole thing off was covering the entire tag with Versamark,
Champagne Dazzle Ink.
I then sprinkled the entire surface with Stampendous,
Detail Clear Embossing Powder.
The result was this shimmery, gorgeous tag giving those vintage colors
an extra pop!
I send more cards than I attach tags to gifts, so this was assembled and will be one more Christmas card off my list! 

The August Stampendous Challenge,
 "Focus on Sentiments",
is very close to coming to an end!
Just look at all of the wonderful projects by the
Design Team!
Stampendous is giving away three stamp sets in August!
