Candy Mine Elf

Good Morning all!
This week is just whizzing by!
I've been getting ready for a little crafty sale so have been caught up making bits & pieces
as well as the usual stuff. Been busy at work too, so I'll be glad 
when the weekend is here!
Anyhoo, here's the card I have to share today!

This is an 8"x8" square base with decoupage, sentiment & design paper from 
The Gift Of Christmas CD Rom by La Pashe.
These are great to cut out & make up & there is also a smaller image on the
sheet, which I used to make a little card, but could be used for a matching gift tag etc!
Not too much to say about this one really, 
A doily, some matting & layering, a double ribbon bow & a little jingle bell hey presto!
You could add some glitter to jazz it up but I love it just as it is!

A little side view which I hoped would show the dimenson of the decoupage
but I'm not sure it does!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like my card.

Christmas Tags

Good morning all! It'sMonday already!
The weeks are flying in!
It's time once again for a brand new challenge over at Eureka Stamps!
Our theme for this week is:

Here's my little tag:
The image I've used is 2501 Cat With Garland & I've also used the 
sentiment 23703 Meowy Christmas. (I've rotated to make it straight),
I used Kraft cardstock & a spellbinders tag die for the base tag.
I then used some sequin waste as a mask & daubed gold pigment ink & red
liquid chalk ink through in slightly different areas, to give a feeling of added dimension
The image was coloured in areas using alcohol markers.
I used a scalloped oval to cut it out & edged everything with the gold ink.
The image & sentiment were popped up on foam pads for dimension,
then I added some fibres, ribbon, gold braid & a little jingle bell
to finish it off.

You can see the gold shimmer a little better in this photo!
Thanks for popping in!
I hope you can play along in our Christmas Tags challenge,
