TIO Challenge 57 As you like it!

As Christmas "inchies" nearer thought I'd have a play with some festive stamps.
I used a combination of antique linen, faded jeans and peeled paint distress inks to create the backgound, and also the inchies. For a change I thought I would try the inchies at a different angle, making them in to a diamond pattern.
I used a Christmas theme plate from Crafty Individuals, which has got a fab selection of tree's, houses and loads of filler in stamps. I used memento tuxedo black ink to stamp the images at an angle, then added some extra colour with Lyra polycolour pencils.
We are lucky this time as the challenge is being sponsored by Crafty Individuals who have put some fab blog candy up as a prize. I would love to win as it's all seaside related, and as you know I live at the seaside. Fingers crossed.

Elizabeth, I love the woven look to this tag. The colours are great and it was only by reading the blurb I realized they were inchies and not woven at all!
