Twelve Tags of Christmas with Viva Las Vegastamps! - Day #6

It's Day Six - we are halfway there!!!
Welcome to the Twelve Tags of Christmas with
Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team!!!

Myself along with members of the Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team
will each be making tags every day December 1st thru 12th,
all using the same plate of stamps
Thanks for stopping by! To get back to the top of the hop,

Here is my creation for today....

Using Stewart Superior Black dye ink, I stamped the "Sleeping Elf" stamp from plate 1363 and colored him using watercolor technique with Marvy markers and waterbrush. This technique is wonderful for achieving depth by building up transparent layers. Then I colored over him with my gelly hologram pen for shimmer. I popped him up on 3-d dots and leaned him against my recycled wrapping paper gifts. I made these by wrapping the paper around chipboard scraps and tying off with recycled gift ribbons. This adorable snoozing elf certainly has the right its back to bed for me : )

See you tomorrow!
