TH12TOC - day eight ....

Woop, wooop, woooooooppppp - I had the mask today :D
Ok I didn't have the other elements, but the mask is the essence of todays tag :D

It was all going so well..... I decided to add the little extra sections so that my sledge was more detailed and was feeling really clever with myself for thinking about brayering it down so it was completely stuck............. but I forgot the masking tape!!!
I remembered funnily enough right after I started swirling on my red ink - doh!!!! nice big corner on my tag!!! oh well,never mind I thought - I will either cover it when I ink or cut it off.

So I get my masking tape out - job done :D
finished all my stamping and come to remove it - oh ripped the top surface off part of my tag :(

Do I start again??? Ithought about it but naaaahhh.... I stuck it back down with a little bit of GA smoothed on with my finger :D

So on to the next part where you swap tha masks - no probs, all lined up nicely and I
cut a circle from eclipse tape to make a nice big moon.

When I finished my inking I removed the circle and used the piece I had cut it from to mask my inkey tag........see, I took it all in T!m ;-)
I gave it a nice bit of splodging with my paint dabber and added some rock candy stickles.

I didn't have the hardware but the tag I had cut out was smaller than T!ms anyway so I decided against trying to improvise as there isn't enough space.
I just added some more rock candy to the sky, cut out some roof tops from chipboard, did the cotton bud smoke like on day one (which I missed off LOL) and added some fibres to finish.

I really like this tag :D
and as the great man himself says ............."Enjoy the journey"
