Tuesday Taggers - St Nick


Here is my entry for this weeks Tuesday Taggers. Now I have a confession to make...not a single one of my Christmas stamps featured the man himself! What an embarrassment! I nipped off down to the local craft shop (who stock very little in the way of stamps) not holding out much hope. I was delighted when I found the Habico clear stamp set featured on Michelle's DT card, and they were only a fiver!
The text in the corner is a Hero Arts Winter stamp and I decorated his beard and moustache by putting extra swirls of clear gelly roll glaze and sprinkling glitter whilst it was still wet. I coloured St Nick with a mixture of promarkers and Distress inks (Aged Mahogany, Vintage Photo, Tea Dye and Antique Linen). I finished it off with some snowflakes punched from glitter paper.
Thanks for looking!

Lovely tag! Well done for finding the stamps. The first stamp I ever bought, back in 1992, was the Hero Arts "Santa with toy sack". The only other St. Nick I've had since then came free with a magazine.
