Simon says stamp and show a holiday greeting

Hi there, over at SSS&S (link on my sidebar) the challenge is a greeting. Well as I am ,like half the world, busy doing Tim's tags I am doing extras too so for this week I have done a street scene tag in lovely warm winter colours mounted on a black card which I have embossed in opaque white stazon  a suitably festive greeting. I like the way this came out. I think the black really highlights the colours in the tag.
I used distress inks on the tag, the stree scene is my own design. I used mica behind the windows and tried to create the feel of everyone inside in the warmth. I splashed gold perfect pearls in the sky and used gems for stars


Be blessed in your art today, next will be tag number 6 of Tim's 12 tags......

HI Neil. Thanks for the nice comments on my blog and via FB. I had to come and check you out, and I have to say I LOVE your style! I stopped here at this post because I wanted to comment on your street scene, which is amazing. I presume you cut it from Grungepaper? Very nicely done indeed. I'll be bookmarking your blog for sure. I love a man's perspective in paper crafting.
