A Twinchie Christmas

The challenge this time around as Show Us Your Twinchies is to use traditional Christmas colours.
I've just received some Moonshadow inks from The Stamp Man and so had to have a play. I started by making my own tartan by using reds, greens and gold (these have the most amazing names like bucket o' blood red lol). Then I painted a piece of card in Long John Silver, and stamped the snowmen and the snow from  Snowy Christmas.

The second one has the same Long John Silver background, and I stamped and embossed a text stamp in red tinsel embossing powder.
 Rob the Robin has been stamped onto acetate and coloured in with marker pens, then embossed with my latest favourite kaleidoscope embossing powder.
These were great fun to make and I will definitely make the tartan again in different colours.
Thanks very much for looking x

  4. Tartan, tartan... hum, since I'm curious...what is it? :) Maybe I should translate and then all things may become clear, but rather it's probably a technique I never used yet ! I guess you mix some colors or something like that... Anyway, your cards seem lovely even if your photos are not the best this time Lol ! Hugs, Coco xx
