Today is Wednesday and you guessed it Stampotique Challenge day! Now, if you have been reading my blogposts, you know I am totally addicted to these quirky stamps ! Anyway today's Challenge is set by Nellie and this is what she said :
"I always intent to start early making my Christmas cards. But real life often gets in the way and before I know it it’s the middle of December and my Christmas cards end up being either very simple and quick or bought in a shop. So I thought why not set a Stampotique challenge to make Christmas cards in November and force myself to really make and early start. So here is what I came up with. And of course I love to see your Christmas cards or other Christmas projects!"
I have made this :
This is a # 10 tag and it was gessoed and then painted with Paperartsy pale blue paint. After this dried I rubbed a white ink pad along the edges and stamped the snowflakes with Versamark and white embossed them. The image is called Are My Pants Too Tight and you can find him HERE. I coloured him with watercolour pencils and clear embossed him. I also stamped a little present, it is Christmas after all, on gessoed book text and coloured the ribbon. The scalloped bit of paper was cut out of the same gessoed book text as was the paper the sentiment is glued on. I did some dash lines with a black marker on both. I made the sentiment with sticky letters. Lastly I made his Christmas hat from the same book paper and a bit of red glitter paper. A bit of red ribbon and a staple finished it off.
Thanks for stopping by !
