Dragons Dream #131 Merry Christmas

Wow I cannot believe this is our last TIO challenge before Christmas, this year has gone by so quickly. This time around we have a Christmas themed challenge, with no recipe to follow, the only stipulation, as always is that you use at least one real stamp on your tags and have fun!
I am back in vintage mode again and loving this Kandi Core card form Kanban, it looks like old leather when it's distressed and sanded.
My cheeky little Robin had to make an appearance again, this time I've cut him out and layered him up along with some foliage, also cut from the Kandi Core. He's one of many to have been watercoloured with Distress Inks for a Vintage feel, the others are lined up ready for my own Christmas Cards. The HOTP sentiment is embossed using Wow Pearl Gold Sparkle, love their powders!
We hope you join in with our festive challenge this time, just click on the link on my sidebar, and don't forget, at least one real stamp must be used on your tag.
Merry Christmas Elizabeth xxx

Sunday Stampers #234 Labelled With Love

Hels song choice this week is Labelled With Love. So the theme this week is "Labels", well I can't resist a tag challenge, can I?
My tag has been inked up with various blue distress inks, love the salty ocean one, it's so bright. All the stamps I've used are from the Snowflake Decoupage set from Imagination Crafts. The smaller snowflakes were stamped out in the various sizes, using salty ocean.

The big snowflakes were stamped out and embossed with wow silver bells, gorgeous sparkly powder, water coloured with distress inks, and decoupaged on to the tag.
Then I decided the sentiment needed a mini tag of it's own!
Thanks for stopping by, am off up the Conwy Valley now for my work's Christmas lunch, my third Christmas dinner so far lol. Elizabeth xxx
