Taylored Expressions Blog Hop: At Christmas.


Hi everyone, I am excited to be a part of Taylored Expressions blog hop. Their stamps are new to me, and I find these cling stamps very good, with great images and sentiments. For this blog hop, I have used the Christmas set stamps. I have also used the wonderful sketch of Sankari. Since the birth of Christ is my focal point, I have done layers of colour by sponging the background before stamping the image. I have added title to the image using silver EP with heated gun. Papers are from the retired SU christmas designer paper. And for the added detail, instead of using flowers or buttons, I have used a sentiment which captures the essence of Christmas. The detailing I have done is the embossing on the background and piercing. Hope you enjoy this blog hop. See the other amazing creations by clicking the link below as I couldn't figure it out.Thanks for looking!
