and welcome to week 2 of our 'Naughty or Nice' challenge here at Stampotique ! I have made a tag for this week but you could make anything you want if you decide to play along. You could win one of two $30 vouchers at the end of the month. Just make sure to read the rules...
He looks rather naughty, doesn't he? I started with gluing the snowflakes onto the tag. These die cut snowflakes were a gift from Mischelle Smith in a swap ! Thank you Mischelle.
After drying I painted the whole thing with gesso and then coloured the tag with Distress Crayons. Next I took a baby wipe and wiped most of it off again. Because the snowflakes are raised the colour stays put in the lower parts and you get a nice contrast.
I then painted gel medium over the top. You have to be quick and not go over to many times as the gel medium will move the crayons. After that dried I added some dark blue on the edges. I used a Neocolor II Crayon for this. I stamped Smile, coloured him with Copic Markers, cut him out and glued him to the tag. I gave him a Christmas hat and then stamped the sentiment, cut it apart, coloured the strips with a Copic marker and the Neocolor Crayon and adhered it to the tag too.
A ribbon finished it off.
I have used these stamps:
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
