Rustic Washi Tape Christmas Tree Tag with Faber Castell

Christmas Tree Tag with Joys Life Stamps #Christmas
This technique is super fun! You can create a wood paneled look to your projects by covering them with Washi Tape and simply adding Gesso and Gelatos.  Let me show you how!

Grab some Gesso, washi tape, chipboard and a foam brush.

Cover the chipboard with washi tape.  I decided to layer mine starting with a wood grain at the bottom because I planned on putting the base of the Christmas tree there.

Big Shot Washi Top Note

After you’ve covered your chipboard with the Washi Tape, cut it in the shape you prefer. I’m running mine through a manual die cut machine, the Sizzix Big Shot, using a shape die that I like.

I cut a Christmas tree shape out of a piece of cardstock and used removable Glue Dots to stick the paper tree in the center of my Washi covered chipboard.  The tree keeps that area covered while I paint the rest of the tag in Gesso.

After the Gesso has dried, color directly onto the tag using Gelatos.  I used my fingers and smudged the Gelatos until I was happy with the result.  Once you’re happy with the way your tag looks, carefully remove the tree.

I didn’t think my tree stood out enough, so I outlined it using a medium Pitt Artist Pen in black.

I stamped the HO3 image, from the Joy’s Life Oh Christmas Puns stamps, onto a piece of cardstock and used Glaze to adhere an acrylic tag to it.  After it dried, I cut the paper to fit the tag.  So cute!

This cool tag is using Joy’s Life Oh Christmas Pun stamps!

I punched a few holes in the tag, using my Crop a Dile, and added ribbon to hold my HO3 acrylic tag.  I thought the design still needed something so I cut a star out of cork.  I smudged the cork with a Banana Gelato and adhered it using Glaze.  I also put Glaze on the front of the star to give it a bit of shine.

I love the way this turned out! I hope you do too! Go try it!

If you’re new to Gelatos, you might enjoy trying this inexpensive set.  It’s classified as a kid’s set, but there is no difference at all in the gelatos, except they cost less!

Have a crafty day!
