Christmas Greetings


It’s time for another challenge at Digistamps4Joy…well, actually it’s been on for a week already and I’m just doing the one week reminder. Last week Team A posted their lovely creations for our challenge, this week is Team B’s turn. So what is this challenge you ask? Well this time we would like you to make a tag. That’s right, we want to see tags. Now this can be a gift tag or a tag on a card, whatever you choose to make.
So since Christmas is just around the corner (sorry to remind you, but it’s true), I decided to do a Christmas tag. I used Digistamps4Joy’s wonderful new image by Jen Lee, called Vintage Lantern Girl. She was just so much fun to play with.
The tag is a svg file by Birds Cards that I printed out and cut out by hand. I then printed out the image on white cs and then paper pieced her outfit. I wish I could tell you what the papers were, but they were just pieces I had in my stash. I used my red glitter pen to trace out the pointsettias on her dress and hat.


I used my bronze metallic pen for the lamp and my gold glitter pen for the light in the lamp.
I then added stickles onto the “fur” part of her outfit and used my Staedtler pencil crayons and oms to colour her dress, band on her hat her face and hair. I used my white gel pen to add small white dots to her dress and the band of her hat. The Merry Christmas and the holly were part of my stash.
Now it’s your turn to show us what you got. Just head on over to Digistamps4JoyChallenge blog to check out all the rules and prizes. And while you’re there, check out what my team mates, from A and B, have done up to inspire you.

Your little tag is beautiful, you have coloured the image beautifully the stickles make it really look like fur. I love how you outlined the flowers with your glitter pen. Thank you for sharing with us at Lady Anne's.
