Today’s challenge on Splitcaoststampers is Inspiration Challenge SC340 ~ Artful Whimsy. They have some really cute pendants and I chose this Old Time Santa Clause as my inspiration for my Victorian Santa Tag:
I love this PSX Victorian Santa and will probably use him for some of my Christmas cards this year. For my tag, I colored the image with Stampin’ Up! markers and sponged around the image with Apricot Appeal and Sage Shadow. I then sponged the whole image with Vintage Photo and the edges with Walnut Distress Inks. I cut the ovals with Nestabilities dies, using Chocolate Chip and Bravo Burgundy for the mats. I punched two 1/2 circles with a Stampin’ Up! circle punch to reinforce the hole for the cording. I used a Stampin’ Up! hand held punch for the hole and threaded it with Stampin’ Up! Gold Elastic Cord.
