Next I took the Noel stamp from Lin Brown ELB10 collection and inked it up with black Staz-On ink. I gently stamped this image onto a piece of scrap paper to remove some of the ink. I did this because I want just enough ink on the fabric to see the image when I stamp. This helps to make the stamped image disappear beneath my stitches.
This makes it look more finished and it looks really nice sitting upright under the tree.
A huge thanks to Lelainia from PaperArtsy HQ for these stunning gift bags. What a beautiful way to start a family tradition. I can see lots of PaperArtsy Christmas bags appearing under trees this year.
