Day 20 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.

The sponsor for Day 20 was Waffle Flower Crafts. I was so shocked to discover that I don’t appear to have any Christmas sets from Waffle Flower – I’m sure I have and they are just hiding somewhere in my craft room! As I decided at the start of the challenge that I was going to use my festive stamps rather than repurpose my non-festive sets, I turned to my Ellen Hutson stamps for my take on Lindsey M-P’s cute stocking tag!

I enjoyed working with non-traditional colours so much yesterday, I turned to some more non-traditional colours again today!

I stamped and embossed the stocking before masking it off and smooshing some abandoned coral distress ink onto the background. When I removed the mask, some ink had bled through it, but I simply lifted it off using a bit of water. Once it was dry, I coloured the stocking using my Twinkling H2O paints before stamping a sentiment from the same Essentials by Ellen set.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I had to come back since I recognized this tag might have been inspired by me! 🙂 I really like your take, with its non-traditional colours. Another great tag for the 25 Tags event!
