…and a partridge in a pear tree
Hello and welcome to the first blog hop for December at AnnaBelle Stamps. If you have arrived from Patti’s blog than you are on the right track. If you want to start the hop from the beginning, head on over to the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog.
Today the Belles are making projects with the theme of Christmas Gift Tags. I made a partridge in a pear tree…very Christmas-y!
I am entering these tags into 2 challenges. The current Wee Memories #78 challenge and Jay Gee’s Nook Challenge #14 which was to use this inspiration photo. I went with the Christmas theme and the photo with the little birdie in it!
I bought these gorgeous laser cut birds earlier on in the year and they were just right for this project. I inked them up with distress ink before spritzing them with pearlised water. I paired the birds up with the tree from the Tree-MEN-dous stamp set. The sentiment is from the Stamped For Christmas set and I added some grass from the All Things Grow set. Ooh and I just had to try out my new distress inks …Wild Honey and Faded Jeans are my *new* favourite colours.
It doesn’t really show it in the photos, but the tags are covered in pearlised water so they are nice and shiny in real life.
