That darned chicken!

Well it is nearly time for Santa and his team to make their epic trip around the globe..............have you been naughty or nice?   You'll find out soon enough, mwah ha ha!

Anyway I thought I'd share a little tag I made for the season...........it's taken a little longer than planned due to an impromptu visit from the Migraine Monkey!!

And as you can see,  someone wanted to offer some assistance to one of Santa's Elves - that Chicken is a menace!

The soft appearance was achieved using the "no lines colouring" method, stamping the images with My Favourite Things Bubblegum Hybrid ink. In order to get that cheeky chicken hiding behind the elf, I stamped the image in pink on the tag and again in black on art masking tape. I fussy cut the image on the tape, placed it over the image on the tag and then stamped the chicken, again in pink.

.......and shake!

I loved snow globes as a kid, until they sprung a leak, that is!  Here is a super cute one from Stamping Bella.......

The challenge with this one was to make the glass globe look authentic........and as I always say these days......."Google don't guess!"  Hopefully, this has helped and the glass dome looks plausible.
