Without a smile

Hello everone, 

and welcome to this blogpost at the end of this year ! Hasn't it gone fast ! 

For today I have made a tag:

And here is what I did with the chipboard:

I decided to use pattern paper and embossing powder to embellish my chipboard today. 

I put some masking tape on the bottom and the top because I wanted to paint the 'skirt' bit with gesso. I wanted to use embossing powder on this part and because it is really light blue, I thought it might not show it's real colour if I put it on the dark brown chipboard. I didn't want any gesso on the bottom 'stand' though... (I could've left of the tape off the top).

After approx. 3 layers of embossing powder it looked like this. 

Next I cut a piece of pattern paper in the shape of the 'bodice' and glued it on. I added some shading with a marker. 

The foot and top of the piece were coloured with a dark brown marker. I think it turned out nice. 

So for the tag I cut a #8 tag from white card stock and glued some book paper to it. I added white gesso and light blue paint and some rub ons... 
Some lines along the edges and a ribbon finished it off... 

I have used this chipboard today : 

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
