The Artistic Stamper - December Challenge

Here is my stamped Christmas angel tag ornament.  She was stamped directly onto muslin fabric, cut into a tag shape, and machine stitched together. The pine branches were also stamped onto muslin. The wooden peace sentiment was embossed with gold glitter powder. A bit of gold organza fabric was inserted to create the 3D wings.

The Artistic Stamper december challenge is "Christmas" and can be interpreted any way you like. To join in with this challenge, make a piece of artwork that includes the theme and some rubber stamping. Then link up your project using the Inklinkz HERE.  Don't forget to leave a comment to let them know you have joined in with the challenge.  As always, there will be a prize for one randomly picked entrant.  The winner will receive a stamp of their choice from The Artistic Stamper.  The challenge is limited to 3 entries per person.

The Rubber Dance December Challenge - You may choose to use the colors or the theme - glitter or a combination of the two. We welcome any kind of projects.  Stamping must be obvious on your project but you do not have to use Rubber Dance Stamps to participate.  If you use our colors, all 3 colors must be the main ones, but you may add other colors too. Enter via the linking tool with a direct link to your post. No back-linking to projects posted prior to the start of our challenge. Combine with as many other challenges as you like but you may only enter a maximum of 3 projects. Winners announced Jan 5th.
(1st Prize - Random Draw: €50 & 2nd Prize - DT Favorite: €25)  The prizes are vouchers to spend in the web shop. We will need a minimum of 20 players so tell your friends to join. If we don't get enough players, the two winners will get a surprise grab-bag with lots of stamps, so don't worry - there will be prizes no matter what!
