Day 14 of Advent

Today's Christmassy piece is in conjunction with my Objet D'art Challenge blog, where this week you can take a tag, and create somethiing extraordinary with it. I have been following Mr Holtz's 12 days of Christmas along with everyone else, and have loved what he has created. I like to use my chipboard tags as they have a white front and are 2mm thick, so will take lots of pounding, and heating without warping. I have several ideas in mind for altered ones, but seeing as I needed to do a Christmas themed one, I thought simple and clean , so here is what I made for both this blog and my challenge blog. If you take part, or comment or add yourself as a follower, you can have the opportunity to win yourself a Mr Holtz lunch tin!
Here is my tag for today
I distress inked the background in old paper and light blue, and then randomly stamped snowflakes over it. I white embossed a few of them ( it didn't melt quite how it should, so is a bit bobbly, but I like the effect!) Then I tore a strip of Crafty Individuals paper and glued it to the bottom, and added the gorgoeus silver reindeer (bought from Paperchase). I finally added very small clear dewdropz to the middle of some of the snowflakes.
The winner of the stamp yesterday is
Congratulations and please email me with your snail mail address. Todays blog candy will be a set of 15 chipboard tags, so comment all you like, and if you are new to my blog add yourself as a follower, and be in it to win it!
See you tomorrow
