TH12TOC - day eleven ....
I can't believe there is only one day left!!!!
Well todays tag involved making your own stamps from TH alterations sizzix dies.
I don't have any of the on the edge dies and already have stamps of the ones I have LOL
I didn't want to use my Snowman die again as it was just going to look too samey as yesterdays.
So I remembered about my Christmas set of Fancy Pants stamps which hardly ever get used appart from the occassional snowflake!!!
So I stamped on to a piece of Websters pages paper with a snowflake border and versamark ink and embossed with clear fine detail embossing powder.
I then inked over it with bundled sage and broken china DI, distressed my edges and inked them lightly with walnut stain.
I had to handcut a tree out of a piece of chipboard, then inked it with my bundled sage.
I used my pearl paint dabber to create a snow effect on it then gave it a quick spritz with white mica mist.
I used a piece of twine from a clothing tag I had saved and tied it around the base of the tree.
When I placed my tree on my tag I realised that it was a bit small and looked lost on my tag so I added the word stamp (again from the FP set) in olive archival ink and added buttons with glossy accents.
I added some fibres and a tag I had already made with my dichroic glass technique, then pinned on a snowflake charm.
I kinda like it and it goes really well with the other websters page tag I made :D
So I decided to link this to the Simon says stamp and show blog challenge this week which is .............show a holiday greeting :D and what a cute greeting it is :D
So what will T!m, Lord of the Tags have in store for us tomorrow???
I have a feeling it might be a alcohol ink technique as we haven't used them much so far............whats your guess???
Wow, its nearly over :(
Hope you all stay in touch :D
