Everyone needs a place and space to be heard... to share and express that which is important in their lives... this is mine.

Faux Stippled Twinks 2

This shimmery background may look familiar. It came from the same background sheet as my last card post. I changed the card design and made it a tad smaller so it can be used as a large gift tag. The vellum layer was crinkled and the edges highlighted with white pigment ink and heat set. I like the jumbo eyelets on this as it seems to punctuate the greeting more.
I highly recommend making full 8 1/2 x 11 sheets when playing with different techniques wherever possible. Having a day when your creativity seems off? Use your time making background sheets in different colors! You won't have to think about a full card design and embellishments... but you will have prepared sheets ready for you when your ideas start flowing again! Because the background sheet was already made ahead, this gift tag took all of 3-4 minutes to make!
