Finally I managed to finish my second tag of the Funky Junky's 12 tags of Christmas challenge. Mine looks absolutely nothing like hers, but I did get inspiration from her in that I used a Father Christmas image (even though hers was stamped, I also used the Tim Holtz on the Edge snow flake die. Details of the Funky Junky's tag and the challenge can be found on her blog
I made my backgrounds with Chipped Saphire and Frayed Burlap distress inks on a large manila tag. I then stamped a Tim Hotz background stamp with Gesso (not much to see of that anymore). I then cut a fancy label and glued my Santa image. I fastened the snowflakes at the bottom and added clear embossing powder which I bubbled up with my heat-gun. I also added some diamond stickles. Finally I embellished with a die cut poinsettia cut from vellum and a fancy snowflake brat at the top which I aged using alcohol inks.
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
