Father Christmas on my favourite tag - CTC #99



Welcome to Sunday Night Blog Hopping with the wonderful Holiday Catalogue where we inspire and challenge you by CASEing the Catalogue - Copy and Selectively Edit - the projects in the calaogue for your creative inspiration.  This week, we are sharing some gorgeous tags!!

  

I've been inspired by this Santa Tag on the front of the catalogue - I love the colours and the slightly vintage look of the catalogue tag, and I've taken it further using the divinely traditional Father Christmas stamp set.  I LOVE this look for Santa and I'm so excited to have finally inked this wonderful image!!  I'm grateful to our blog for making me get it out and use it!!


The main image is stamped with Early Espresso and then watercoloured and then I've sponged a little Soft Suede around the edges to give it a vintage feel.  The little extras you can see are some Burlap Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine (from the Bakers Twine Trio Pack) and some Cherry Cobbler ribbon (from the Silky Taffeta Ribbon Combo Pack)  I love the way we can get extra value when purchasing bundles and packs of our favourite products!!

  

Now it's time for you to continue your hop using our lovely buttons - forward to see Krissy's great project, or back to see Kelly's wonderful inspiration.  


And if you've been inspired (and we hope you have!) feel free to join in our monthly challenge by using this link!!
