DAY 11 - 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS



Happy Sunday everyone.


The only things needed for this tag I had available, was a tree embossing folder and some string........and it was too late to buy some of that foam to make my own stamp in the way Tim Holtz demonstrated, but am definitely going to get some of this as its a brilliant way of creating your own stamps. Even if you are not joining in this challenge I highly recommend you watch the demo.


Embossed the tree on the music sheet, distress inked and added a little cream Flowersoft. Silver embossed the stars and outlined the tag in silver cream. The Angel is a stamp from Crafty Individuals (one of my favourites) and coloured with distress inks with a little Frosted Lace Stickles added. I wanted to create a mystical look with the angel coming up from the mist, so used some silky stuff left over from Halloween and am quite pleased with the result. But left no room for the bookplate, ran out of space because I got too carried away with the overall look......bad Netty.......smack hands........


Have just seen Day 12...........not a hope, haven't got a thing needed, so will have to really think hard about that one...........and my poor brain is worn out..........aahhhh ........do you care.....No not a jot.........lol
Just seen the new Sparkles Blog so am entering this Christmas tag in their challenge plus The Stamp Man are doing tags so hopefully can enter their challenge as well.


Thank you again for bearing with me on my tags..........nearly over now.........phew. I hope you all have a joyful Sunday and take care, Annette x

Absolutely stunning Annette. I think it's much more rewarding when you have to improvise and give it your own style - as you surely have. BTW thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog :-)
