Our new challenge has just started over at the High Hopes blog and this week our wonderful guest Diva Michelle is asking you to get out your Santa stamps. High Hopes has so many wonderful Santa images amongst it's huge catalogue. If you don't have any Santa's in your collection your are still welcome to join in... just show us your festive creations!
Remember to enter our challenges you need to use High Hopes Rubber Stamps!!!
If you are looking to purchase High Hopes stamps I have a fantastic selection over in my store. Also you will find some of the High Hopes Santa's at amazing prices over in my Christmas Sale. You'll even find Santa's Portrait as used on my project today :-)
I was short on time this week but noticed this hot chocolate set that Zoe had chosen for her teacher was crying out for a little tag. So I coloured my Santa Portrait in the wacky colours to match the mug. I have again watercoloured today. Santa's face has been coloured in Distress inks: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye and worn lipstick. I have added shadows to his beard and hair using Weathered wood. The green on his hat is coloured in Twinkling H2o Key Lime and then shadows added with Distress ink Peeled Paint. The orange is Distess ink Spiced Marmalade with a little H2o Persimmon to deepen the colour and add the twinkles. To finish I cut a white pom pom in half so it fit flat on the paper and added some stickles.
The cardstock for the tag is also sparkly and from the DCWV Taj Mahal stack. For some more fun I added the pop pom ribbon. Then a cute little bow with a snowflake 2 charm and red 4mm flat back pearl to finish.
Be sure to check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the team.
Just a quick post as we are off Grocery shopping *groan* but as soon as I get back i'll announce the winner of the cute Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp Bernadette. You haven't entered yet? Well just scroll down a few posts as there is still time!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
