Drumroll please ................ ta da!!! Tag number 12 all done and dusted, with time to spare!!
I then scrunched a piece of cling film over the top and left it to dry.
Once the cling film was removed I was left with a fabulous icy look to the card, where the mica had dried in the creases ...... so shimmery in real life, not sure the camera picks it up though .....
I stamped my little forest in the background, using 1st and 2nd generation stamping and a grey Archival ink
You can see I've sprinkled the chunky white embossing powder over the top .... looks like quite the blizzard going on there ....brrrrr!
I stamped the jolly little snowman using the same grey ink, and added a touch of colour, and a few Glossy Accents here and there,
A little more of the chunky stuff, and a sparkly sentiment finish everything off nicely. The snowflakes have been punched from the same glitter card, and then coloured using a Blue Alcohol ink.
And there you have it ..... my final tag for Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas Event.
It's been great fun playing along ....... there's some stunning tags on there.
Thanks to Loll for hosting the event and to all her friends who have taken part and given us fabulous festive inspiration. Can't wait to do it all again next year!!
How's your Saturday been then?
I managed to get most things done this morning ...... 2 trips into town, but still no party frock! I knew that wouldn't be an easy task ........ I think last years may have to have another outing and just dress it up with something new and very sparkly!
We had a drive up to the north of the island to my favourite shop. The Christmas shopping has begun ...... a bag full of stocking fillers, oh! ..... and 1 new tree decoration (I couldn't resist her!)
And I just love their festive carrier bags!!
We had fish and chips for lunch on the way home too ...... nom!! nom!
And oh yes, look what my lovely postie brought me this morning ......
24 brand new colours of the fabulous Distress Stain Sprays. So all in all, it's been a good day. Didn't get to the wine place though ..... never mind, luckily there's still plenty in the wine rack here!
Thanks for popping by .... and thanks to everyone that's left such lovely comments on my Christmas tags, I appreciate each and every one. And I hope you've enjoyed the tags as much as I have.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend
Cheerio until next time
