Sunday Stampers - Week 83 - Merry Christmas Everybody

Morning Stampers,

.....It's Christmas!!!! *said in a Noddy Holder shouty voice* just to get you all singing today I chose this title LOL Thank you to everyone who joined in with the Angels challenge last week - this week the theme is Christmas. To join in with the challenge, all you need to do is make a piece of art and then blog it, pop back here to leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry. *The challenge will be open until 23:00 on Saturday 19th December.*

I started to miss the Twelve Tags of Christmas I made one for today...totally inspired by previous tags of Tim...and using techniques used over the past couple of weeks with the Tim tags.

I used clear embossing ink and powder for the swirl, blended Antique Linen, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain Distress Inks over the surface...and then made the snowman by embossing him in white onto Grungeboard, cutting him out and then using a gold Dabber to colour the Grungeboard underneath. I made the ribbon scarf like Tim did for his first tag and added a couple of bells which I coloured with Precious Metal paint. The beaded fringe started out as clear, so I spritzed some Glimmer Mists onto it to colour it to match.

Thanks for looking... have a brill week and don't forget to get inky and messy!

Absolutely fantagstic Hels :) I'm going to do a tag too. Still want to do last weeks but the only thing 'angelly' I had was background paper but I've been unable to find it. Have something else in mind so hopefully can get both done today. I've still got a box opened out and painted with crackle paint and a few stamped images on my kitchen worktop - it's been there nearly 2 full weeks - waiting for more inspiration. I would've normally given up by now, but as it will be a useful box once done I will persevere LOL
Happy day to you ;)
Anne xx
