Keep calm...

Hello everyone,

and Merry Christmas !! It is time for my second project for the Country View Challenge "Christmas with optional reds, greens and rust".  I am not a very traditional person so I have made a tag.. There is still time to play along ! Just make sure to read the rules HERE. 

I think he is hilarious ! 

Here's how I made it :

First I die cut a tag and made masks of the cat and the hat. I don't usually make one-layer cards but I thought it would be good to try ..

I put the masks on the tag to see where I had to stamp...

I put the tag in my stamp positioner and stamped the hat first..

Then masked it off and stamped the cat....

Here is the result... 

I then masked everything off again to ink blend the background.. 

This is how that looked. 

Next I took off the masks and coloured the cat. 

He does make me laugh.. he looks so grumpy ! 

I used this 'water-wall' stamp to create snow.

I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. 

And here is the finished tag ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by..
