Day 28 - The Daily Marker Thirty Day Colouring Challenge #thedailymarker30day

The end of "The Daily Marker Thirty Day Colouring Challenge" is in sight, just two more and then it is done and dusted.  As you may have noticed, I don't follow the daily prompts.  Today is brown and I don't really do brown, so I've used colours that please me.

I decided to opt for a tag today and this one I've created screams Christmas to me, which makes me happy.

I started off by using a stamped image from a Penny Black wood mounted stamp called "Joy! - 2258K" which was a 2001 Donna Klotzie design.  I stamped the image in Versafine and coloured it with Distress Oxide Inks.

I used a Distress Oxide Ink called "Pine Needles' to colour the edges.  I then popped an "Andy Skinnner - Tornado Stencil" over the top and using a wet wipe, removed some of the ink, which gave the lovely swirl look in the background.

Finally, I used some white Gesso on a fan brush and gently tapped the brush so that droplets fell on to the tag to replicate snow.  A red ribbon finishes the tag beautifully.
