First, I chose a stamp from a fantastic Christmas CHF set called Primitive Christmas. Just pop it down on the reverse side of the Scor-mat and it clings wonderfully! You may notice that the tag has already been stamped with a background image - more about that in my next post.
Ink the image - here I am using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I love the new Memento inks, they give great coverage and vivid color, the smaller Dew Drop pads travel well, plus the ink works great with Copic markers.
Next, stamp the image. I am using manilla shipping tags from Office Depot. I just flipped the tag over and pressed over the stamp with my fingers (this is how I always stamp large images like Scrapblocks or background stamps to get a good impression).
This is the result ... so far:
Since that seemed to work well, I decided to grab an additional image and a fresh tag and try stamping two images simultaneously, like so:
The images were inked with Memento Tuxedo black and Rhubarb Stalk. I rolled the black over the sleigh edge for a little shadow and Voila! Just look what came out below.
I'll have more details and photos of the finished tags in the next post. I really love the tags I made ... what a shame my Christmas wrapping papers don't coordinate at all, lol! Oh well, I guess that means I'll have to wrap some gifts in parcel paper so I can use the tags.
