Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 7

I love Tim's seventh tag - just my colours and gorgeous shabby details! The dull light doesn't really pick up the gorgeous background very well but it looks so beautiful in real life!
I don't have the stamps Tim used so I used a Whiff of Joy background text stamp and a piece of plastic wrapping for the crackled effect - I'm really loving the inventive part of creating these tags when you haven't got the correct items! The sentiment is by Stempelglede, stamped with black soot distress ink and clear embossed.
I added a scrap of lace from my stash and some silver cord that I teased out to look like tinsel. The berries were originally silver and white so I've coloured them with copics..
I have the tree die so I was able to create the branches easilly. I have used the sizzix holly swirl die for my leaves and used greaseproof paper as I don't have glassine :). It worked brilliantly and I think it looks just like the glassine paper! They didn't quite end up dark enough though - I think I'll use a darker green next time as it lightens when you heat it into the paper.
I coloured a scrap of pale blue ribbon green using distress ink.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Your tags are all gorgeous but this one is my favourite so far, I think because it is so much in your style.

Your interpretations of Tim's Tags are lovely! It's fascinating to see you adapt your stash, so clever!

one thing puzzles me - how did you use cling film to reproduce the crackle effect?! It looks good!!

love MagsB x
