Think Ink Challenge from Artful Inkables


When I first saw this new release I just knew I HAD to have it!!! These little guys are so adorable they just make you Christmas "HAPPY!" The challenge for Think Ink Tuesday at Artful Inkables is to make a tag...any kind of tag. Well these little guys stood up for the challenge and screamed "me, me, me!" So as not to disappoint, I gathered them together and chose these images. They were happy with glee knowing that not only would they appear on my blog, but also on SCS. I love it when images come from Kristin...she is such a talent and she can go from adorable to elegant to "Twilight" in no time.

I first cut white cardstock in a square and glued the Crafty Secrets Christmas Journal bottoms to the square. Then I used my Square Nestabilities to cut out the square, stamped the image with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored with Copic Ciao Markers and OMS. I added Liquid Pearls for the snowflakes and the top of otter's hat, a little sparkle from Stickles, MS branch punch with sparkle paper (greatest ever invention), and Glitter Dots and Gold Ribbon. Wha..la!!!

Now I feel bad about my scarecrow below, because he was not posted long enough for any comments...but the challenge ends at midnight for Think Ink Tuesday and I wanted to make sure I made it.

I hope these little guys put a smile on your face when you see them. Thank you for comments...Oh by the way. Kristin has 4 new releases and you can find them at Artful Inkables so be sure and stop by so you can see what a variety she has forthcoming! Please DO click on the picture to get a better view!!!

Velta, these are just adorable my friend. I'm so glad I'm not the only one losing things...LOL, my friend Carole says that those little gremlins are all around hiding things. I love all the little special details you added to your tags girlfriend. Those stamps are just too cute. Velta, I don't see an email addy on your blog, I would love to answer your questions. You can e-mail me from my blog, and give me your addy. Keep up the awesome cards my friend.

Hugz, xx
