Stamp Fairy is the Sponsor this go around
and I chose this really fun to color image for my tag!
You can see the Design Team's take on this theme HERE along with the rules and deadline for the challenge.
[Note: specific information on supplies and sources
will be found below under “Supplies”.]
The image was printed three times, colored with Copics, two were fussy cut, sculpted and layered with foam tape to create the 3-D image. A snowflake punch was used in the corners and the positives were then layered together with a small button and red waxed linen thread and then fixed to the lower corner for composition balance. The image panel was layered on the green Basic Grey DP [for contrast and to hide the Copic ink that shows thru the back] with a punched layer of icicles along the side [?? have you ever seen them grow straight out?]. Slots were punched in the top to add the Christmas ribbon, the red heart button was attached using the same waxed linen to tie it together. [The ribbon is has been a hoarded treasure for many Christmases - I won't waste it on a bow - only small links like I have used here.] The Sentiment was stamped & cut out - corners were rounded and it was tucked under the heart button & attached with foam tape. Gold foil was glued to the belt buckle and the bell on his cap and shoes for a touch of bling.
