Twelve days of Christmas: Day 11

Entries are coming thick and fast now!
Here is my take for Day 11, using an Alice in Wonderland stamp from Stamp Attack. I have had the set for ages, love it but the stamps are not that easy to use...

The background is a clear stamp from Visible Image, with an Anna Griffin border top and bottom. I have glued coloured crystals for the music notes and hand drew the stalks. The corners are metal cut-offs from a project I finished recently and were just too pretty to throw away!

Days 11&12

All done!

Day 10

10 Lords a Leaping! with the help of a Zetti stamp.

Twelve days of Christmas: Day 10 by Nattywoo

Finding an image for the Lords was easy: I have always loved this Paper Artsy stamp and the gentlemen are very Lord-like and so perfect for this. Making them leap was another story though...
Here is my attempt, using squiggles from the Stamp Bug as springs. The cogs in the background are from Paper Artsy too.

12 days of Christmas: Day 8

I am now in catch-up mode!

You know you have too many rubber stamps when you go through your animals wondering what you can use as a substitute for a cow and realise you have three different cow stamps (OK, one of them turned out to be a bull...).

The girls image is from a company called 'Blue Cardigan' which seems to have ceased trading. If anyone knows where to get their stamps please let me know! I extended the wires with a pen, and hey presto! The flowers/grass are Art Impressions and the cow came from a job lot on eBay eons ago. Background is sponged Distress inks.

OK, this one was quick and easy. Since the beginning of this series I have been meaning to use these Invoke Arts dancers, and the Prima tassels border just begged to form the curtain.

You cannot really see it on teh scan but the main dancer's outfit is enhanced with glitter pens. I will add a shadow for the main dancer as she looks a bit silly floating in mid-air - I did not realise until a moment ago!
