Just Inklined BlogHop--Christmas Packaging

Welcome to the November Just Inklined Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from the super talented Karen's Blog, wasn't her creation awesome?  I decided to use the 3 Christmas Baubles to make a beautiful sparkly tag for a set of tiny christmas balls I am giving to my son and his new wife for their home this Christmas.

The image was colored with copic markers and attached to a white glitter board cut into the shape of a tag.  It was then airbrushed around the edges in blue.  In keeping with the gold tones of the gold of the ball container and the corners and bow I added gold glitter pen lines and gold highlights to the baubles.  Simple but elegant tag, perfect for their gift.

The next stop along your Hop is back to Heidy who is the Hostess of our Hop this month, and wasn't her theme awesome!!!  Her creation is wonderful and I can't wait to give it a try, but before I do, I will have to make a trip to the Just Inklined Store which is now made even easier for me since I prefer to pay with PayPal and now I can with the new store, check it out here,

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

Cathy

Oh Cathy this will be a great gift. Especially since this is their first Christmas together and will have to buy so many ornaments to fill a tree. Beautiful tag. I like the way the ornaments look like snow is dripping off of them. Hugs Linda

What a wonderful gift for a new household! I think it would look pretty just as it is, setting on a mantel or shelf, too. TFS
