Tanda Teaser "Winter Sports"

This week's Tanda Teaser is called Winter Sports....I fell in love with a certain Tanda stamp but it was a little bit too tiny....no worries...Andrew resized it..(see Tanda blog for details)...so here we go...and I used some of my stash from the NEC...how smug am I feeling!

I stamped the boys using Adirondack winter sky and then set it aside to dry...once dry..I used my promarkers (NEC purchase!!)..in WARM grey 1 - 5 to colour the image. I trimmed this and matted and layered with metallic copper and beige card.

The next layer was white card...I swirled a bit of ink, from Adirondack winter sky pad, around using a stencil brush to take the white away, then I stamped foliage and cones using Tapestry stamps from Holly Border and Pine Branch Border sets (foliage and cones in Adirondack winter sky, berries in Impress Poppy Red. The edges were then punched with my new Martha Stewart punch (I'm so glad I managed to get this at the NEC!)

This was again layered onto a piece of paper printed from the Artylicious Decadent Brocade CD Rom and then onto the base card.

The bow was stitched with gold embroidery thread...I really must do a step by step to do these bows...they are perfect every time!...watch this space.

I hope that you can find time to join in with the teaser...
