Tags, & Tags, & Tags

Good Morning,

Posting on a Sunday which is unusual for me but I've been neglecting of my blog readers so between now and Christmas I'm going to post a new Christmas tag every day.

This tag is made using Christmas Ornaments from Just-Rite Stamps. It's a set of four ornaments with four interchangeable borders. I have become quite a fan of this brand of stamps. They are economical and are also great for coloring with my copics. Deborah over at Fargo Cat Shops carrys both Just-Rite stamps and copic markers.

Copic colors used:
Y38 - Honey
Y17 - Golden Yellow
Y 28 - Lionet Gold - used on the metal part on top
R46 - Strong Red
YG67 - Moss

Stickles used:
Eucalyptus - on green areas
Xmas Red

I think I've finally got the hang of using the stickles without it looking like a kindergarten student applied it. For me...the trick is to keep the nozzle in contact with the paper while squeezing out the glitter glue.

Do you have any other helpful hints...if you do please share them in the comment section.

I tried to get a good close up so you could see the glitter.

Tonight I'm going downtown to listen to some Christmas carollers. Trying to get into the Christmas feel.

Happy Sunday!
