Santa Got Tagged!

...Mmmm, I love this Santa image from the Tim Holtz collection...does anyone else think that he bears more than a passing resemblance to David Bellamy tho??? ** For the UK readers, you will probably know who I am on about if you are old enough LOL ** He is a well know British Naturalist...and....oh, I am so excited that I can write this....I didn't have to "gwapple with me gwape nuts" when I made this tag....**I reeeeeally hope that just a few of you know exactly what I have just said and you don't all think I am stark staring bonkers ...ROFL...sometimes I sit here typing...laughing my socks off ... humour me...please??????**




Anyway...the tag...made using Distress Inks, blending them all together with Cut & Dry foam and then stamping Santa Bellamy over the top with StaZon and then using a waterbrush to add some extra colouring to the image...even if I did over do the cheeks so he now looks like he has had just a tot too much sherry :O))




I added some Rock Candy Cracklepaint in patches and once this had dried I splodged some Rock Candy Stickles over the top for some Christmas Sparkle...the little Idea-ology bits just finish it off nicely I think.

I have had a lovely morning...and I am sooo lucky! Lottie came to visit and brought with her two of those amazing bags she has been making...click on her name and you can see her beautiful art! Thanks for looking..have a good day peeps x

When you think about it, he does look like David Bellamy! I laughed so much I nearly choked on my doughnut (it's lunchtime, I'm allowed!)
p.s. blog candy arrived safely, just not had time to play with him yet, many thanks!!

He totally looks like David Bellamy. How have I never noticed that before? I'm never going to be able to use this stamp without laughing. And trying to explain this to my students here in New York is going to be a nightmare!

Beautiful tag. Thanks for sharing.
