Sunday Stampers week 230 - Weds 6th November

Hello Blog Friends,

I'm later posting today, because it's my no work day...hence crafting day...and I wanted to get my project for this week's Sunday Stampers made!

This week Hels has set the theme of  'blue' for the challenge, so to be seasonal, I thought 'ice blue' and made this large tag/hanger...

 First of all I cut a large tag shape from linen effect card and stamped a snowflake randomly all over it with Perfect Medium. Then I inked all over the tag with a mix of these distress inks: Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Faded Denim..these creates a resist against the stamped images (which in reality are much more defined and visible than the photo would have you believe!).

I then cut a piece from a double-sided adhesive sheet, peeled off one side and stuck it to a sheet of card, which was used to cut the snowflakes from Spellbinders Snowflake Pendant 2010. The die-cuts were then dipped into Clear Micro Glass Beads before sticking to the tag.

A wide piece of seam binding was then cut in half to give it a frayed finish and I stamped 'Jingle Bells' along it with Broken China distress ink. To finish off I added a Vintage ribbon double bow and some little bells!

Hope you like this and thanks for stopping by...I am hoping to finish off my 'general' Christmas cards this afternoon...wish me luck!
