Hello There Peeps
Not long now until the Big Fat Chappie with a red suit comes to visit, with presents if you are good, but coal for those who are naughty. I am hoping for a tonne myself!! And some clementines would be welcome as we forgot them yesterday! Tee Hee!
Right then. Onto the purpose of today's post. I am behind on my Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge but luckily Linda is keeping it open for another two weeks. Phew!
So here is my Tag 8......
I had an absolute ball with this one. My favourite so far! I just let it flow using the background that Linda showed us and snowflakes, but the rest was just fun!
Linda showed us the technique for the background which is HERE. I don't have the Distress Paint but I carried on and used Picket Fence Distress Stain instead of paint and it worked ok for me. The stamp I used is my Hero Arts holly stamp. This stamp is usually a stalwart for Christmas cards but I don't think I used it this year!!! I used a NBUS in the stamp! I bought these last year and so far I have only used the star before.
The sentiment is from the Artistic Outpost stamp with the TH snowflake stamp.
I coloured my Snowman with an assortment of Copics, DI (with water pen) and Distress Pens. The nose I blinged with Schtickles and the scarf with Glossy Accents. I punched a couple of holly leaves with a Snippet of metallic green card and for holly I used schtickes again. His body has been swooshed with Rock Candy Distress Stickles. So shimmery though I could not capture it on the photo as I hoped.
The Snowflakes were all cut from Spellbinders die and I added some schtickles in the centres, and that charm is one I bought in a gorgeous shop in Bath as well as the teeny tiny bell. I used some ribbon which I coloured with distress stain. The Let it Snow ribbon is VOS and so is that blue metallic cord. I used some wording from TH chit chat stickers.
I am slowly catching up. Finished all my
wrapping tonight! Yeay! You should see my Rudolph beers!!! I will share later!
As I mentioned there is now more time to finish the challenge and if you have nothing else to do on Christmas afternoon after the dishes are done, why not sneak in to your craft area to join in. There is fabulous prize which is sponsored by Funkie Junkie Boutique.
As there are Snippets here by way of white cardstock and the green holly I am taking this over to the Snippets Playground. The Playhouse is looking very festive right now!
Thanks for calling by.
