Hello again! Three posts in three days is such a rarity for me! But I do have some fun Christmas tags using some new Penny Black  products that I hope you will like.

A couple of week’s ago, I made this card which uses the same technique as the tags below. I stamped a whole lot of images from the Penny Black Tiny Treasures stamp set onto water colour, and then loosely water coloured around the images to create a fun and whimsical effect. To add some extra sparkle, I coloured in all the white images with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen. They are really sparkly and shimmery in real life, but was hard to capture in the photos.

The sentiments are from the Holiday Snippets stamp set, which has just about every Christmas greeting you will ever need!
