QKR Stampede is to create a tag for Christmas. Since we are now Arizonans, I thought a Christmas cactus would be appropriate. You may enter your Christmas tags (up to 3) by Thursday, Dec. 8, 6 p.m. EDT.
In order to showcase the Christmas cactus I used the salted background You might find the tutorial here. Briefly: spritz glossy cardstock with water; add reinker as desired (I used an aqua brush); sprinkle with salt. When dry, brush off the excess salt. The remaining salt adds texture. I am hoping my colors remind you of the desert sand and sky. I used a stencil for the stars, and glittery pens to add color. The edging is done with stickles. The shape is a Nestabilities die cut.
