can you hear those sleigh bells?
Well time for another tag ...for Linda's 12 tags of Christmas....and yes still behind but pedalling fast...so relieved we have until the 8th January as most of the rest of mine will be posted after the festive fun ..as I plan to take a little crafty and blogging break and spend some time with my wonderful children, Husband and family...
I started by creating the background using a tutorial from Tammy Tutterow...followed in the colours that Linda used...wow what a gorgeous technique and one I will use again...
I added hints of brown script as Linda did and also edged , as Linda in brown ...so cannot really take any credit for the scrummy background at all! after that I did a similar layout to Linda, but changed the colours and added some rusty wire...
So for the sentiment and snowflakes I use paler colours..
adding a twirl of rusty wire...do love this stuff! not that you would notice or anything!?
For Santa , I stuck to blue...you know me not really a red girl! the nearest i got was a hint of victorian velvet for Santa's rosy cheeks...and another favourite some rock candy glitter fell on to adorn his hat trim...and buttons
Finally to finish some dyed seam binding and some rusty wire and rusty bells..
I will be linking this up to Linda's 12 tags here and will hopefully see you with one more tag before the big day...then I will leave you in peace to enjoy your time...and spend mine with my family xx
