Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 4

Oh my goodness have you seen Tim's tag today?? so striking - I just love it! Unfortunately I only have brown alcohol ink not the lush red Tim used so not sure just yet how I'm going to create mine. Anyway, here's my version of yesterday's tag. I don't have the snowman die so thought I'd go with one of the reindeers from the gorgeous reindeer flight die.

I used a nestie die to cut the snowrlake - love the gorgeous effect with the rock candy crackle paint!

Here's my reindeer. Love how the effect turned out and I added the feather and pearls to his head and gave him a chiffon scarf.

I really loved Tim's resin look cut out letters but unfortunately the reindeer's body is rather thin (not that I have the 25 day anway LOL) so I had a go at cutting the numbers out. It has worked but really the numbers are too small for it to be effective but I can't wait to try the technique out on something else.

I created the snowflake border with acetate and added some buttons from my stash with some tulle - LOL the hazards of creating at night in poor light! - I thought the scrap of tulle I found was white last night but alas this morning it would appear it is pale pink - oh well!!

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Hi Jane! Brilliant to see you're doing the tags as well. This is a beauty and I love the effect you got with the crackle, I think I was a bit heavy handed with the stain over the top and LOL with how long it took to dry, seemed like forever :D. Love the delicacy of your tag, it's so gorgeous. Big hugs, Chris x
