Tim's November Tag Take 2

Hello again!  

My Friend Lesley and I are having a Crafting Day next week (on a school day too!) and, having seen a few projects that I have done recently, Lesley has asked me if I would show her on Friday how to do the resist technique as she is not sure how to go about it.    

Well I was sitting in my room the other evening, there were a few inks on my desk, and a tag and one thing led to another.......Who could "resist" the lure of new stamps ey?  So now I have two tags for Tim Holtz's November tag!  

I used my TH tag die and SU vanilla cardstock, the same stamp set as I used for the original stamp set, but as you can see the Tree one.  This time I used some paper tape, lace and ribbon (that ribbon is sooo precious I only use it on special projects!).  Some pins in the ribbon and string at the top and hey presto.
I decided to add just a little texture by adding glossy accents to the baubles.  It is a shame the lighting in the mornings is sooo pants lately as you cannot see the perfect pearls mist on there!

Thanks for calling by.

Just realised I hadnt answered your two questions! firstly I have no idea why I have martians in a pot! think they are rubbers no idea where they are from - planet Zog perhaps? and yes I am a Gemini! surely you cant tell that by looking at my desk? It must be because I am slightly mad and love yellow really mustnt it? oh and I love shoes too.

Hi Sam

I might not be able to see the perfect pearls mist .. .. but I do see one amazing and beautiful tag!!

What gorgeous colours you have worked with.

So much scrummy detail on one small piece of card!

Have a good day.

Completely fabulous! The colours are stunning, and I love the added glossiness on the baubles... By some bizarre oversight, I wasn't a Follower - sorted now!!
