Gosh hasn't it got cold? Almost too cold to play in the Playground so wrap up warm and try and keep warm and well.
Onto today's crafting project. Would you believe I have a tag to show you? Surprised? Yeah right!!
I am on Tag 6 now (yippee) of The Funkie Junkie's 12 Tags of Christmas, and still loving them. (Let's face it, if I didn't I would have given up by now!) If you are quick and have all your crafting jobs finished for Christmas you may still be able to get all 12 done before Monday, for the chance to win the prize as it is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
As usual I will show you Linda's tag first.....
And here is mine....
I was trying to show you the schparkle on the background hence the wonky look! I forgot to take a straight one but hey ho...I like this angle!
Here is a close up...
That is the top and here is the bottom.
I used a Snippet of a Czech book for the background and adhered it to the tag cut from cardstock with my TH die and once dried I used some packing tape to take off some of the print (distressing yeay!), then I inked the background with Pine Needles and Vintage Photo DIs. I flicked some water and dried it with my heat gun. I stamped my TH snowflake stamp with clear schparkly embossing powder. I cut a TH clock with a Snippet of chipboard then inked with Aged Mahogany DI and embossed it with several layers of UTEE before adhering it to the background. The tree I stamped onto TH Cordinations cardstock using Forest Moss and Vintage Photo DI and edged with Bronze DS. I then smooshed some Distress Stickles on there too.
For the Snowflake, I was lucky enough to be given some small TH Snowflake die cuts (will be ordering that die very soon - I have the large one but it was way too big) and I swooshed it with Bronze DS before fixing it together and adhering it in the centre of the clock.
The bow is stamped with a Sheena Douglas stamp, which I recently won from the Playground, and stamped with AM DI and clear embossing powder before painting it with AM DI and a water brush.
The flower at the top left are some TH poinsettias that I have had forever, with a tag cut from the TH die and stamped with a SU stamp in AM DI. The lace was out of my Snippets box too so more of my bits and pieces used up.
I wanted to share some photos with you of Hubby and my trip to Bath on Sunday for the Christmas Market. It was a lovely few hours that we spent there and all that was missing was a brass band, though there were lots of street buskers some of whom were fabulous. (Jan can you be there next time for me!)
Right. That's all Folks for today. Thanks for calling by and hope you like my tag and pictures.
