Twelve Tags of Christmas

Lolls Twelve tags of Christmas went live today, wow there are already some amazing tags and today is day one.  If you have time drop by and take a look Stamping with Loll.

The tag top is done using a stencil and texture paste then water colouring with the stencil in place.  The elf is fussy cut coloured with Ink tense pencils and edged with a black pen, I find this gives a much cleaner look to the edges.  I added some white Wink of Stella on the rim of the hat and the cuffs of the jacket.  I did a bit of a boo boo on his hat so had to hide it with some holly.
