I started out by coloring Snowman Sid in with my Copic and Prismacolor markers. He is then trimmed out and coated in MS glitter. I added the black buttons threaded with twine on after his glitter treatment dried.
My cardstock measures 6" x 8" which was then scored and folded. I cut my two layering pieces, the red and the red polka dotted papers. They are both edge distressed with white craft ink. I stitched these two layers together with ivory thread, using a border stitch on my sewing machine.
I used a basic white office supply store tag upon which I stamped a star from SU! in red craft ink and heat embossed it. I removed the plain white thread that the tag came with and added a scrap of vintage linen and tucked behind my tag is a piece of vintage wool both came from my local antique store.
A finishing touch on the right hand side are the felt stickers from MS.
What a year it has been for the fabulous Tiddly Inks!!! I am so excited and VERY MUCH looking forward to a FANTASTIC New Year and a wonderful 2011 with Christy and my fellow unbelievable Design Team members!!
