Tuesday Taggers - Christmas Carol

Hi Guys

Well when I first saw this challenge title I wondered what on earth I could do for this. In the end though it took my hubby to convince me of what to do. He didn't do this by telling me what to make or what carol to choose, he did it by just being his lovable self. He is one that believes that Christmas should start on 24th December and end on 26th December. With this in mind here is my piece of work for this weeks challenge. I didn't choose a traditional Christmas carol like Janet did, or go with a picture of carolers singing, no instead I went with Charles Dickens 'A Christmas Carol' and Bah Humbug.

I have used, (believe it or not), Real Red ink and Old Olive ink and coloured the card with sponges. I have then used water and flicked it on to the card stock to achieve the faux bleach effect. Unfortunately I don't have a stamp set small enough to do the text so I cut this out on my machine. The holly leaves are cut out by hand, as are the berries. The berries have been made by punching into Real Red cardstock with the crop-o-dile. I have finished off the berries and letters with Crystal Effects.

Well until my next post happy crafting.
