An Eggnog?


I'm really not quite sure why they named this cute little Penny Black stamp An Eggnog . What don't I get about that? LOL!

I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow Markers and a damp paint brush. The santa hat was stamped once again, cut out and popped up with foam tape. To embellish it I spread a thin layer of White Liquid Applique then sprinkled itwith Crystal Ultrafine Glitter while it was still wet. The layer behind the main imge was cut with my Spellbinders Labels Three Nestabilities .

The sentiment is from the JustRite Stampers A Merry Little Christmas borders and centers set. I punched the sentiment with a McGill Stacking Oval punch (1" x 1-1/2"), then punched the red layer behind it with the next size larger McGill Stacking Oval (1-5/16" x 1-13/16). Those were both layered onto a Ribbon Tags Trio 2 shape cut from Blush Red Medium Prismatics cardstock. The ribbon is May Arts Dark Red Two Tone Ribbon .

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper pad. The cardstock is Blush Red Medium and Dark and Spring Willow Medium Prismatics .

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm off to watch Dancing With the Stars! :-)
