Encouraged by a blogging friend Deborah & my husband I am entering this Christmas Tag for the Waltzingmouse Makes "TAG- You're it!! Challenge!!". I've been a Follower of Deborah's since we both started the MCC Stamping classes & have been intrigued by the stamps she uses. I neither recognized the Stamp company nor the images but was struck by their versatility. There is a very generous prize of £100 spend on Waltzingmouse stamps for the winner, plus another £25 if a Waltzingmouse stamp has been used. Since I don't own any of these yet & a free digi download isn't possible (my current lack of printer) I resorted to using one of the stamps from my "Unused Seasonal Box". Although I've not completed the first set of MCC classes homework I'd seen the course material for the first week of the second set & knew that I could use my future Brayered Embossed Resist "homework" project as the basis for the Waltzingmouse tag. The cord was made by plaiting 3 strands of ribbon.
Stamp Woodware (GRW01 Christmas Angel).
Inks etc... VersaMark watermark stamp pad & Stewart Gill Ultrafine Embossing Powder, Kaleidacolor Rainbow Inkpad (Berry Blaze), Dusty Concord Distress Ink for inking cardstock edges.

Waltzingmouse Makes - TAG- You're it!! Challenge!!
En route to a secondhand bookshop in Abergavenny we stumbled upon an Artists' Supplies shop where we found two men & a hand to help me with seeing how light is reflected onto an image or object when colouring. Richard found some history & architecture books for himself too.
