Stripes with Simon Says and Christmas Tag


This is my latest make. It is for Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge was to use stripes in the make. The background had acrylic paint stripped randomly on it and when dry Distress ink added. I also the ran it through an embossing folder with uneven stripes which had also been inked with Brushed Corduroy first. It gave an interesting background. The icicles and skated where some Glimmer Mist chips that I already had. These were inked and skates also stamped with music. Sparkles were added to the icicle to make it glitter.
The rossette was a Tim Holtz die. I used the snowflake tissue tape onto paper first and then cut out. Bits and bobs from my stash completed the composition.

This is also a tag I have made for The Christmas Ornament Swap over on Gingersnaps. It is not too late to join in and we desperately need some more UK players. The idea original came from Tim's 12 tags of Christmas. I just thought they would look wonderful on a tree as decorations or made into a swag. I think you have till the end of the month to join in. It should be wonderful and what a great way to start Christmas.
