Hello. Welcome. Happy Solstice everyone. Today is the shortest day and from here on the days will be getting longer again as we swing back towards Summer. It leaves me feeling restless and I was easily distracted by the new challenge at Time Out. They want new beginnings with a twist of using a Christmas stamp for a non-christmas project. Now that's a new one. I have often seen non-christmas stamps used for christmas projects but this sounded like a really fun challenge. And who doesn't want a break from Christmas at this time of year?? I also have a few birthdays coming up so I decided to make tag for a birthday using the elf from PaperArtsy Zinsky set.
I cut a tag from green textured card using Stamplorations Luggage Tag die. I added a strip of washi tape down the RHS and inked the remaining edge of the tag with black archival. I grabbed a scrap of white card and stamped and embossed the elf from PaperArtsy ZA19 and coloured him with Promarkers. I fussy cut him and added an extra scrap of corrugated card to the bottom of the tag for him to 'stand' on. Then I put three stamps together from Stamplorations Bird of Paradise, stamped and embossed them with black powder. Hmmmmm, I usually do a test stamp when I put stamps together, but I didn't this time!!!! Ahh well, maybe it adds a bit of fun and whimsy. A bit of bobbly wool and a little jingle bell from Korthobby it's ready to go on the package for the New Year birthday girl.
Thanks for dropping by. Hugz
