Dots and/or Stripes - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 1st of September, 2017

Well I'm a bit late this week, as I have been travelling for work this week and when I finally arrived home, I could not really get up!

But for this fortnight's challenge we are hosted by Cindy, who chose the theme:

Please remember that it is Christmas Projects only.

So I am following on from a previous post and making easy tags!

This time I have used a stamp from our sponsor - Crafty Sentiments Designs - called the Joy of Christmas.
The image has been digitally printed on to X-Press It paper, fussy cut out with my Silhouette Cameo and then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • hat - C3, C5, C7, C10, black Wink of Stella marker, clear Wink of Stella marker
  • snowman - colourless blender, C00, C0, C1
  • carrot nose - YR09
  • cheeks - R20
  • mouth - RV17
  • scarf - R35, R37, white gel pen
  • stick arms - E74, E37
  • bird - E74, E37, R35
  • star - Y28, gold Wink of Stella marker
  • tree - YG06, YG09, G05, G17, G29, E37
  • snow - colourless blender, C00, C0, C1, BV0000, clear Wink of Stella
  • background sky - B000, B00 (outline)
I have then adhered the coloured image to a green tag from my stash (bought long ago!) using foam squares.
The spotted evergreen ribbon tied in a bow is from Anita's Everyday Ribbons, also from my stash.

We have Crafty Sentiments Designs as our sponsor for this challenge.
