A Medieval Christmas designed for Happy Daze

The current Happy Daze Challenge is 'Explosion of Colour', so I decided to make a tag in bold colours. I used distress stains in Wild Honey & Barn Door to create the background. I used gold embossing powder for both latin scripts and around the edges of the tag. I stamped one of the houses from the Artistic Outpost whimsical melange in black embossing powder, then cut out and added this beautiful image of the Madonna and Child (from Imagenes vintage gratis). I used a hinge from the Tim Holtz elements and added some Inka gold. I dyed some ribbon with the same distress stains and added some fibres from my stash.

The current Happy Daze challenge is An Explosion of ColourYou have until Midnight on 30th November when one winner will be drawn at random to win a  £15 voucher and free P&P to spend in the Happy Daze shop. Maximum of 3 entries per person & you must use at least one product which can be purchased in the Happy Daze shop.

The richness and depth to the colours is glorious making them almost glow. At the same time you have created a piece which exudes serenity.
Very special.
