We are hopping again at Joy of Sets for the last time for this year and our theme is anything Christmas.  I just got myself a copy of a lovely set from Visible Image called Christmas Backgrounds which I wanted to try. 

I started off with some Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Oxide Inks for my background - using lots of water and watercolour paper.   I then stamped the Christmas word stamp in Versamark and used red embossing powder to make it stand out. I used a tag framelit to cut it out and added some of the lovely SU satin ribbon.  The Joyful Tidings sentiment is from Tim Holtz Happy Holidays words and I layered them twice and cut the top layer out of white glitter paper.  I used a stamp from an old SU set Merry Mistletoe to add a border with some Versamark and a white jelly roll pen to add the stitching marks.

I hope you'll enjoy hopping along the blog and seeing what everyone has done for you.  I'd like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas or Holiday season or Yule from all of us at the Joy of Sets Facebook Group.

Very pretty Fiona. For some reason your tag reminds me of a bottle of champagne! I love all the words and fonts too.

This is so beautiful and so unusual. I'm always reminded by your creations of how unique we can make our projects if we have a play around with inks. Sometimes I feel that stamping is missing from my work and you always manage to make stamping up front and center with your projects. I need to play around more with inks in 2020, I loved my foray into rolling paper around in watercolours a few design teams ago. Thanks for joining the hop and for helping it to go smoothly.
