.....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 already...so 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!
