A couple of Christmas tags i've made using lots of Dylusions spray ink & stamps. The little girl stampd image i can't remember what the make is because a friend stamped the image for me. She does have a slightly naughty look to her i think which gave me the idea forthe tag.
The tags i made from white card which was put through my big shot with Tim Holtzs on the edge dies to give the tags some lovely shape to them.

Journal page

A tradition we have in our family is that our Christmas decorations get put up on the 9th December, so i thought i would mark this event in my journal.
I've used Dylusions Spray inks, (Cut grass, Post Box Red, & Vibrant Turquoise) for my back ground & Viva Terra through a stencil which gives some lovely texture to the page.
My friend Sue uses this a lot , so thanks Sue for showing me.
Right back to what i've used .
Dylusions Stamps used were, Christmas Boarders, Christmas accessoies, & Further around the edge,
and  coloured the images with Derwent water colour stick .


                                    I seem to be trying my hand at lots of different things recently.
I've made a simple draw string bag for my grandson.
I managed to find a couple of Dinosaur panels in my local fabric shop then set about sewing them together . I had to add some extra fabric to the top & bottom of the panels because they were'nt quite long enough for what i had in mind.

Christmas Cards

Here's a batch of christmas cards i've made.
The cards are Paper Mania cards which i brought a couple of years ago & thought it's about time i got on & started to use them.
The Snowman is a High Hopes stamp wich i coloured using Whisper pens & did the shaded areas with Shaded lilac Distress ink.
I've used some peel off christmas words as well.

Journal page

We went to see the Christmas lights being switched on in our high street on saturday evening & boy was it cold that night.
So my journal page is the switching on of the lights.
I started my back ground with Distress inks , fired brick, shabby shutters, & Victorian velvet.
I used the Fired brick through the Dylusions Diamond border stencil  & Cut grass spray ink, which has been high lighted with white pen & silver Poca paint pen.
The baubles & lights are from Dylusions christmas border stamps, which have been coloured with whisper pens.
