Brrrrrrr! My phone this morning says -3 feels like -6! Yep! It certainly feels like jumping back into bed cold this morning. I just wonder how my girls are in their coup!
Over at The Funkie Junkie Linda's Tag 4 has a little Country feel to it. So as usual I will show you Linda's tag first.....
Isn't it just divine? I love how Linda displays her tags and I am trying to find a new way of displaying mine for photographs too, but I have to take the photos in my bay window in the lounge as that is the best place for light. Let's see ey.
So here is my tag....
I changed the background colour as I wanted to try my new Festive Berries DI out that was screaming to be let out of the cellophane and so I stamped the background with my Wendy Vecchi stamp. Love it. So then I had to think which embossing folder I wanted to use and the Christmas Tree kept coming to the forefront as I was going through my embossing folder drawer, so out it came. I used Cordinations cardstock and then sanded the edges a little and inked a little Vintage Photo for the trunks. I stamped the Crafty Individuals Believe stamp and tore the individual word out, inked the torn edges with Vintage Photo DI, added some Stickles on the dot of the i, and adhered it onto a rosette that happened to be in my Snippets box.
Whilst I was rummaging in my Snippets box I came across the mini reindeer which I had cut when my friend was up some time ago (note to self, get this mini die). I stamped it with my TH flourish stamp and Festive Berries again and then swooshed some gold perfect pearls on there. I then had an idea to get the Rock Candy Distress Stickles on top, which I did and also the trees. Unfortunately I am not sure the photo picks this up very well. A little Snippet of lace at the bottom and a piece of holly cut with my TH Lamp post die and the tiniest Snippet of red SU pleated ribbon on the left. Instead of using the berries from the die I wanted to add glass beads to give a little more dimension to counterbalance the rosette.
I stamped my TH Post Card stamp with Archival ink then quickly decided to add clear embossing powder to make it stand out a little more. I distressed the edges using the TH distressing tool, and inked with Vintage Photo DI, added some Snippets of ribbon and hey presto Tag 4 was complete!
So that is now 5 tags done, just 7 to go. As I have some play time tomorrow I shall try and maybe do another one or two tags. I will be very happy once I am over the half way mark!
