Christmas Lights….

Hi Everyone
My project was started with looking through my stamps and stirring at me on one of my shelves was my floor polish!
I started by getting my Halloween napkins and wine charms I purchased from Wilkinsons in the Halloween sale both cost me 50 pence.

I sprayed a piece of napkin with cosmic shimmer sprays in red and green, then added diamond sparkle to the eye sockets on the skulls on the napkin.
I then used a piece of acetate and stamped  the Web onto it in versamark and used WOW ebony embossing powder and heat set.

I then stamped the stringed lights on acetate 3 times with versamark and heat set with WOW apple embossing powder and coloured the lights with a yellow Promarker.

 I cut some of the lights and placed them over the web and also dotted them onto Moth Fab after she had been coloured in with Promarkers.
The acetate web piece I turned over and put the dry inked napkin face down onto it then poured some of the floor polish onto the back of the napkin.  I then scrunched the napkin into the liquid making a further effect on the back of the acetate.  I then left this to dry.  Once dry I attached the acetate to a tag with brads.This technique you can adapt for tissue paper and stamp your own background and add different mediums, glitters etc.  The floor polish acts as a clear glue.  Get some more inspiration from Sheena Douglas (she started it all off).  The only place I have been able to purchase this polish is ASDA.  It lasts for ages and was £3.99 for a 750ml bottle.

I then put a wine charm through the tag hole.
The phrase is really fun, tongue in cheek time from the Internet:
Santa is very jolly because he knows
