Bah!! Humbug!!

For anyone you know who hates Christmas!! Hehe..

I found this beautiful stamp on Ebay. I was watching it and lusting after it for ages, and it kept being relisted, thankfully, until I finally got around to laying my money down, and I just LOVE it! I am into Victorian things big time at the moment.. Forsyte Saga... you name it, I love it, and this is called 'Victorian Street', apparently. It's by Personal Impressions, from the Beryl Peters Collection. Isn't it fab? Doesn't it shriek Dickens at you? Can't you see Bill Sykes with Bullseye wandering down the street?


After stamping, I used my other current fave, the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder, and gently dabbed the bumps that were covered with black with the white Sugar Candy inkpad from Elzybells, and it worked as well as I thought it would. So pleased with that effect. It really does look like it's just begun to gently snow large flakes.

Found the image of Scrooge on the net. I think it's from the Scrooge movie with Albert Finney (my favourite), but it's not a very clear picture, and it's been a while since I've watched it, so who knows?

The Bahh Humbug panel is using 'A Charming Font' font, and cut with Nesties Labels #8, then shaded to make it look sooty with black Koh-i-Noor pencil, a paper stump and Zest-It.
