The Stampman Challenge - Anything goes Tag

There's a smashin challenge over at The Stampman this week, particularly cos it doesn't have to be Christmas related, unless you want it to of course. After weeks of making Christmas things I really fancied doing something different.

I bought a couple of stamps at The Stamp Man a few weeks ago and havn't had chance to play with them. This stamp and technique were demonstated by the very talented Jill Bolton at the last open day and I just loved how she used them.
The stamp was stamped in versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder over patterned paper, then inked with TH dusty concord and cleaned up with a rub of a tissue. With the addition of some bits and bobs it really cheesred me up to make it.

Hope you're all  totally unstressed and ready to enjoy the holiday
x Michelle

Gorgeous tag Michelle. Love this technique.

I'm afraid I'm totally stressed, Lol! My own fault for leaving everything until the last minute including making cards and then the snow brought everything to a standstill.
