Father Christmas at Visible Image

 Hi Guys
Here we are this chilly Tuesday morning for another 'Soozie Tooseday'
With a bit of festivity :)

There's just less than a week to enter our November Challenge 'Make it Sparkle', as from next week there will be a whole new challenge for December with a wee surprise too :D

Mark and Helen at Visible Image HQ are working on some new designs at the moment, so if you want to get the low down first hand then make sure you keep checking in to our facebook group page HERE! and please share any creations made with Visible Image stamps with us too, we'd love to see them :)

My creation today is another 'reverse negative split image' tag...... I love these, very different and effective :) and relatively simple to do!

I versamarked and then heat embossed the super cute 'Father Christmas' in wow red apple onto white Neenah card and again in wow bright white onto red card.
I repeated this with the 'greetings' part of the awesome Vintage Seasons Greetings, measured half way marks, guillotined and pieced together.
Placed on opposing red and white card with double sided tape, guillotined the outer borders, matted onto silver mirror board then
using my crop-o-dile made 5 holes and placed eyelets in, threaded the candy string through, added some tinsel and a santa sleigh from my treasure chest.
No colouring of the image involved at all!
Final touch was to add some glamour dust with my quickie glue pen to
his facial hair and the white fluffy bits of his outfit!

Stamps used are :-
Vintage Seasons Greetings £3

Father Christmas £6.99

I hope you've enjoyed my tag and I've inspired you to try the 'reverse negative split imaging' and to purchase some INKredible stamps from Visible Image.....HERE for all their Christmas range :)
