Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 10

Well, I had to stay up late to get this one done but I managed it! I'm so glad I did, if you haven't tried the technique Tim shared on creating your own transparencies with clear tape you really must have a go - it is unbelieveable! I don't have any facets so created one with acetate and one with a glass pebble. I wrote out the music myself for the background with a permanent pen as I don't have the music stamp. Wish the light wasn't so poor - this tag is so gold and shiney in real life and the photos just don't do it justice.


Here's a close up of my first "bauble" you can just see the effect towards the left where you can see the metal shining through the image. I didn't have any images of Santa Claus that were small enough unfortunately so the "believe" doesn't really make much sense to the rest of the tag LOL - never mind!


Here's a close up of the pebble one. I used just ordinary sellotape for mine and it worked brilliantly!

I added a couple of silver beads from my stash and some tulle. The embossed holly was stamped with a Stempelglede stamp.



I added some grungeboard letters and covered them in gold stickles as I don't have gold paint. I should have inked the edges black first - can tell it was late LOL - I think I might see if I can get them back off and ink them as they would look much better that way.

The baubles are attached with jute string and a tiny brad at the top.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Gorgeous Jane. Well done for keeping up (almost) with Tim. I'm really lagging behind this time. Next year (ha ha) I intend to start my cards earlier and I will have all the time for Tim!

Such a sweet tag, Jane and such a lot of effort that went into the making of it. I must say, I really like the transparency film idea. Hugs, Lesley
