Papertrey Ink Blog Hop for November


Happy November blog hopping! This has got to be one of the world's worst photos, but it is rainy and gray outside and I cannot get a good picture to save my life.

A very small contribution to the blog hop, this is from the set 'Believe.' For this hop we were to show altered wrapping paper, packages or tags. I chose tags as the simplest item during a very busy week.

I embossed the tree in gold and in silver. One gold tree uses green highlights with some randomly scattered rhinestones. The red tree has one cluster of red rhinestones in the center flower. The silver tree also uses red as a foil and I kept the star at the top gold for a bit of metallic contrast. These are pretty simple tags that you could add to a package. Thanks for looking. Happy hopping.
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Believe
Ink: Gold and silver pigment inks
Other: copic markers in red and green, red and green rhinestones, gold and silver twinkle embossing powder.

This set has never really "spoke" to me. But I LOVE this tree for a tag. And you could make fun little ornaments with it, too. Thanks for sharing!!!
