Colours For Christmas

Evening lovely Bloggers. I hope you are all keeping warm and safe in this extremely chilly weather.

We woke up to a covering of snow on Saturday and then had about another 3 inches yesterday evening although nothing like they've had further North. The scenes from Northumberland are incredible, it was up to the reporter's thighs on the lunchtime news!!!

Frankie has asked us for a Christmas tag this week for her Tag It On challenge concentrating particularly on the colours. I love turquoise and blues and as the snow at the moment feels particularly festive, I decided to base my tag on the glittery side of Christmas.

The background is Broken China distress ink sprayed with gold perfect pearls and then overstamped with snowflakes in more Broken China and Dusty Concord and some have been silver embossed. The snowflakes and sentiment stamps are from the Sheena Douglas Bah Humbug set.

The snowflakes are Sissix dies coloured with Broken China and overstamped with Dusty Concord and then glossy accents applied. I added glitter to the top one too. The Tim Holtz swirl was lightly rubbed with yet more Broken China and then lots of glitter added. The late sunshine caught the bling beautifully.

Thanks to Sioux for encouraging me, I have also entered this into the SCD challenge this week which is SNOW.

Thanks for stopping by and stay safe.

Hi Lisa - thanks for your lovely comment and I'm glad you've got the cuttlebug dots mastered at last! Now your tag has the style that I would dearly love to master so we're all in the same boat lol. Absolutely love your work.

Love Lynda xxx

This is gorgeous Lisa and particularly apt for the weather we are having at the moment.

It's just stopped snowing but the forecast was for lots more here over the next 24 hours or so.

Stay warm.

Hi Lisa

Gorgeous work .. .. and yes I agree, the sunshine did catch your bling beautifully.

We haven't had much snow. A little on Friday that hasn't yet thawed and another little sprinkling last night just to freshen it all up again LOL!!

Love Jules xx

Wonderful colour and texture Lisa - a really lovely tag. I have asked for lots of inks from Santa this year as all my inky friends inspire me! We are actually not too bad with the far! Cheers Claire x
