It seems very strange not to be making a tag, after the past 12 days of fantastic inspiration from Tims amazing tags. But a change is as good as a rest, apparently, so I have made a Christmas decoration. I will use this as my entry in the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Number 24, and the December Artistic Outpost Referral Program
I have used a 4'' x 4'' frame which I've painted with cranberry acrylic paint, sanded and then stamped in gold ink with a Tim stamp. The Father Christmas is an Artistic Outpost stamp stamped in coffee archival ink and then coloured with vintage photo distress ink. I have applied a large quantity of Rock Candy Distress Stickles, but even so you can only just see the sparkle. He is really sparkling, honest!! The letters are from the Seasonal salvage Stickers, mounted on grungeboard, sanded and inked, and I've inked some ribbon with aged mahogany distress ink and used a little wire hanger that I've had for ages as a finishing touch.
