Eureka moment Part Two

Ok so now I'm ready to show you what I was excitedly rambling on about yesterday.

I took 2 stamps - Tiny Tags and Darling Dots



and turned them into a Christmas tree !

I can see you're looking confused but bear with me and I will reveal all.... drum roll please ...

I love it !!!

I started doing it with the Stamp-a ma-jig just to see if I could get what was in my head onto paper but with a bit of messing about I found the easiest way is as follows-

I part inked the parcel stamp for the base then put 3 small dots to mark out the dimensions of the tree and stamped in these corners using the Tiny Tag flourish


Then its just a matter of filling in and you're ready to decorate your tree !I'm not a tinsel girl myself ,lol so it was just a few simple baubles for me !

I did it in traditional colours to help you see what it's supposed to be lol but once I've practised a bit more I'm thinking of a black tree with loads of bling !!

Wow , I guess thats my first ever attempt at a tutorial- hope you like ?

If you've got any alternative uses for stamps please let me know, I'd love to see them.

Off to see what else I can come up with....... x
