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.

Stamps: Santa's Elves and The Whole Herd - My Favourite Things
Paper: Navigator Office Card 160gsm
Colouring Medium: Copic
Tools: MFT Stitched Traditional Tags, MFT Blueprints 24, White gel pen, Spellbinders Grand Calibur, Misti, Eclipse art masking tape, We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Fancy Floss, MFT Bubblegum Hybrid ink.

Well, I think this is going to be my final post for 2016 - so I would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2017.

See you in the New Year
until then
Happy Colouring

Awesome colouring as I have come to expect from you (no pressure right? lol), but what I love even more about your work is the creativity and humour that shine though, whenever I visit I always have a reason to smile :) xx

Hi Jane, this is a gorgeous tag. Your colouring is exquisite and the design is total genius! Very clever idea to add that pesky chicken!

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas
