Sunday Stampers wk 279: Winter - Friday 25th October

Hello Friends,

Having missed taking part last week due to too many things to do and not enough time...I'm back this week with a contribution to the  Sunday Stampers Challenge set by Hels Sheridan, the theme of which is 'Winter'. If you want to find out all about Sunday Stampers, check out Hels' fabulous blog here

This week I have made a tag (I'm pleased to say that Mr Mojo is gradually appearing from the suitcase he chose to remain in when we got back from holiday, but sssh...don't want to scare him back in!).

I took a large white tag and stamped the Indigo Blu 'Stag on a Cliff' image (yes I admit this is my current very favourite stamp!) using clear Perfect Medium, then I sprinkled with Cosmic Shimmer detail white embossing powder mixed with smidgen of aurora  crystal sparkle embossing powder and heat embossed.

Next I inked up a 'That Special Touch'  snowflake frame mask with Perfect medium, placed it around the top and bottom edges and one side of the tag and ran it through the Grand Calibur. After embossing, I sprinkled with the aurora crystal and heat dried - sadly as always none of the sparkle shows in the photo! Finally, I inked all over with Peacock Feathers distress ink and roughed up the edges of the tag.

I stamped the sentiment and also heat embossed using the white detail powder, then cut into a banner shape. I used some vintage ribbon, which I sprayed with water and scrunch dried for the bow and to finish I added a die cut snowflake, which i made using double side adhesive paper and dipped in micro beads, then I added a button and some twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate your visits and comments!

Love and Hugs,
Carole X
