I thought I would have a go at making a Christmas bottle tag using Uru and Bird, a cute Christmas stamp designed by Norma Fickel.
I had a bit of a try at Paper tole following the tutorial by Inge Groot which you can see HERE. I just love the 3D effect of this technique and have been admiring the beautiful work of Debby Yates for ages - so Debby if you see this - how'd I go?
Here is a side view of the image with its three layers. Do you like the pleated flower? I used the tutorial by the gorgeous Claudia Rosa which you can find HERE.

Oh, and I thought I would share this cute photo of my 14 month old "helping" me photograph my bottle topper, lol. My little guys are great little helpers. Everytime I bring out a card I've made, my eldest (2 1/2 y/o) says "pwitty!", aww, thanks little Mate!
Well, enjoy your Tuesday everyone! I'm off to watch Play School with the kids :o)
