Catch the Bug #6

Almost there! The sixth challenge in the series is Oldie but Goody with a photo inspiration. Being a new comer to Catch the bug challenges I am not certain what an oldie but goodie is, but I do recognise a snowman when I see one! Having made cards up to now I decided to go with something a bit different and made a gift tag. I hope the image I chose is an oldie, it is certainly a goodie.

MaterialsSAM_1805(watermarked) used:
Bugaboo stamps – Snowman Block
white stamping card
Copic pens
silver metallic pen
Wink of Stella – clear
snippet of green Christmas ribbon
silver eylet

I printed out two copies of the image and coloured them in with the Copics and the silver pen. I added the Wink of Stella to the silver frame for a little more sparkle. I fussy cut one whole image and just the snowman from the other image. The whole image was glued to some thicker white card and cut out with a small border around it. I put a silver eyelet in the top and threaded through some green ribbon. Finally I attached the second snowman over the top with 3d foam pads.

So six down and one to go. I think I may just make it if the time difference works in my favour! I always get so confused about what the different time zones are compared to the Uk but I think I still have until tomorrow mid-day to finish the last one. As it is getting late here now I may not manage to start it until the morning so it is going to be tight timing. Still I am going to give it a shot, fingers crossed!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
