TH12TOC - day seven ....

....of the improvisations LOL :D
Well when I looked at todays tag I thought - hmmm thats not so hard - ok I don't have everything but I can give it a go - I think thats teh name of the game really LOL

Ok so heres my effort for today....

Well I couldn't find my sticky canvas and I forgot to stick my petals to grungeboard, so that was a good start LOL
I made my own spray mists with DIR in barn door and fired brick to colour the petals.I gave them a quick spritz with mica spary in white and added some fired brick distress stickles.
I glued them all down then added the leaves and twiggy bits from a bought poinsetta spray.

I don't have the woodgrain texture folder but liked the idea of using the bingo one and positioning the 25 in a convenient place ;-) ....see that was a strategic move, not a happy accident LOL

I coloured the tag allover with antique lined, highlighted the numbers with walnut stain and inked the edges with barn door.
I highlighted the 25 with the red ink and stuck a frahment over it with glossy accents.

My letters have a shiney surface so I spritzed them with the left over misters and dried with my heatgun then added glossy accents.

I have to say that flower was pretty tricky - but I think it was my own fauly for not doing it properly LOL

I t wasn't my fave tag to begin with but I'm quite pleased at how it turned out :D

Well lets see what challenges tomorrow brings :D

While I was blog hopping earlier I came accross a comment of wonderful it was to work on a project that so many other were working on at the same time - I agree :D
And I also think it must be pretty wonderful to be as talented and powerful as T!m.... who hasn't got a wish list as long as their arm yet????? LOL

Hugs'n'still snotty snogs,
