Goodly Morning Stamp Fans!!! Tis that time of the month again when I do a taggy giveaway. This month I have made a Christmas style tag, combining the challenge theme for this month, which is backgrounds and also our "focus on" which is Distress Stains.
I have been playing about with different mediums recently and come up with a fabby use for Rock Candy Cracklepaint... all the deets on what I did will be on my own blog today... so I won't repeat myself here :O) So, once I had achieved the background look I liked, I used Weathered Wood Distress Stain to colour the background of the tag and then edged it with Faded Jeans DI. I used Cobalt Archival Ink to stamp some snowflakes in the background... which are from the Tim Holtz Christmas collection sets.
The snow man is cut from the Winter Wonder Alterations using mountboard, which I then overstamped with a sentiment (also Tim Holtz 2011 collection) in Jet Black Archival and then added an extra hat and nose to him that I had coloured with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. The little Ticket is cut from the Movers & Shapers Labels Set and stamped with Jet Black and Vermillion Archival Ink. Finally, I added some Idea-ology Trim and a Memo Pin to hold the ticket and added splodges of Picket Fence and Rock Candy Stickles to add some bling.
To win this tag all you need to do is leave me a comment here... and... if you pop over to my blog, leave a comment there too, you will be entered twice... simples! The winner will be chosen at random and announced on December 3rd 2011 so you will have the tag in time for Christmas. That's all from me... don't forget to nip across HERE to see the fabby special offer ... 20% off Distress Stains this month. Thanks for looking... TTFN!
