25 Days of Christmas Tags

I'm super delighted to be joining in with Uniko at Tracey McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas Tags Challenge.

Here's my tag:

Fresh from a Copic class with Faye Wynn-Jones where I learnt how to create a snowstorm the need to practise this technique inspired my tag. I used a tree outline and filler from Uniko's Christmas Pop and coloured my stormy snowy sky all around it.

I then added an extra layer by stamping and hand cutting the tree and popping it up on foam pads over the first tree. The greeting was added to the snowy foreground. Then loads - and I mean loads - of sparkle was added using Stickles.

Stamps: Uniko, Christmas Pop, Simply Said Blocks Christmas
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched traditional tags
Pens: Copic, B37, B39; Sakura gelly roll, white
Embellishments: Stickles, star dust; Ribbon from my stash

Thanks so much for dropping by today. I hope I may have encouraged you to join in with the 25 days of Christmas Tags Challenge.

And keep crafting!
