Day 24 of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags! It's a little bit like Christmas Eve... well, not really, but it sounds good. ;) Remember that all the details of this event, plus the link-up for your own tags, can be found here.
For Day 24, we welcome guest and sponsor Heffy Doodle!
Heffy Doodle sent the Tag Team a generous assortment of supplies. Here's the first tag I made:
These stamps are all from Wanna Build a Snowman, and the stance of this cute little penguin seemed perfect for having him add the star to the Christmas tree. Of course, he's shorter than the tree, so I have him standing on a giant snowball. To ground the scene, I used a Versamarker to add a line of white puff embossing powder. For the sentiment, I used just the last word "warmest" from a longer sentiment, and paired it with the larger "wishes". The main images are all watercoloured.
For my second tag, I wanted to come up with a design to use what may be the world's smallest gingerbread stamp!
I used my small Gina K Build-a-Wreath stencil to use my gingie, a candy cane and a hard candy. Mrs. Claus, in her apron, gets to take centre stage. She is coloured with Copics, and her glasses and holly berry have a bit of Glossy Accents. Hey, it was already out from the last tag. :D
One last quick tag. I asked for Heffy Doodle's Bubble Waves stencil, as when I saw it, I thought it would be fun to use for an abstract, snowy background.
Does it work? Even if it doesn't really suggest snow, I like how it looks. Since my last tag was images with no sentiment, this one is sentiment only. (I always have a justification. :D)
I have an obligation to keep up with my tags ;) but if you've fallen behind, not to worry - Tracey will leave the link-up open for a few days after the event ends, so any tags you are catching up on have a chance to be added to the gallery. And don't forget to comment on designers' tags to increase your odds of winning a fun prize!
