It’s Day 2 of Ellen Hutson’s 12 Tags of Christmas, and we’re bringing Joy to the World! Be sure to check out what my fellow teamies made — full list HERE on the Ellen Hutson blog! As for me, I came up with a super simple tag that you can easily make in multiples. Check it:
The secret here is the gold metallic watercolor in this Altenew Metallic Pan set — I just can’t get enough of this set lately! I LOVE how it comes in a metal paintbox. :)
See how shiny it is?
The other trick to making these? Use a dry brush on that swipe of red and use your thumb and index finger to kind of push the bristles apart. This will give you so much texture! It’s easier to show you how this is done than to try to explain it, so I put together a super quick video for you over on instagram.
Doesn’t that “Joy to you from me” in the Retro Holiday Greetings set just make the perfect tag? It brings me joy, I tell ya!
You know what else brings me joy? PRIZES! Oh yeah!
