HLS Mixed Media Challenge February "Paint"

Good evening all.

Still relaxing at the beach here on South Island!

Time once again to inspire you for this month's Mixed Media Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. Our theme for February is:

This challenge is sponsored by

Winner receives a $15 discount from HLS

I've made a start on next years Christmas tags for this challenge.

The tag was smooshed with several colours of distress paints, once dry I used the same colours of DI to fill in the gaps and add an edge to the tag. Snowflake stamps and dies are from Paper Smooches....stamping has been heat embossed and layered up; dies have been cut from waste smooshing....all topped with stickles.  Fibres are from my stash.

Sentiment from the Mixed Christmas Sentiments set.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration from the other girls, you won't be disappointed.
