It's challenge 21 in Compendium of Curiosities II at Linda's. As always, we're based on the book of the same name by Tim Holtz and his genius mind. This week we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who is donating a $25 gift card to one lucky player.
This week our challenge was all about Blended Stains and it's on page 45. I used Victorian Velvet, Barn Door and Spun Sugar Distress Stains. I am loving the collaboration Blueprint Stamps designed by Tim and Mario Rossi III. So fresh and fun. I've yet to see anything like them on the market. I knew I had to have the Christmas set because to me, the Toy Soldier looks like a Nutcracker and my friend Evan LOVES and has quite a large collection of Nutcrackers. So it was for him that I made this tag. All of the Christmas-y elements on the tag are for my stash. The Toy Soldier/Nutcracker is embossed with black embossing powder. And yes, the felt on the bottom is upside down, but I used Terrifically Tacky Tape on it, so it's there for.ever!
