Day 11!!

It’s the second last day of the 12 Tags of Christmas! Tims Day 11 tag can be found here.

Nicole’s Tag

I loved the technique that Tim used on his tag today. The method of shrinking the plastic in the UTEE while coating it was fantastic. However I simply didn’t have the time today to do this. I have no large Christmas stamps so I stamped a sentiment and cut it out and inked it. I created a background similar to Tim’s and then came my big cheat! I took a trip over to the Graphics Fairy and downloaded a image of some holly and berries and a fantastic Victorian (and blue) Santa!

I printed these both out and added to my tag. I put a layer of glossy accents on the holly to get a glassy look like on Tim’s tag. This little cheat made my tag quick and easy to make. I am looking forward to having some free time to try out the fantastic technique though!!

Nicole’s Tag

I really enjoyed making the background on my tag tonight. I inked up the background with ink and splatters. I have a music note stamp so used that. But I had no crackle stamp. To improvise I crumpled up a scrap of paper, dabbed it on a ink pad and attacked the tag with it 🙂 I had Kraft glassine but no alcohol inks to colour it with and no green ink bright enough to give a good colour to it. So I painted it with a paint dabber and heat set it. I then crumpled it up and cut out leaves from it.  The berries are card candy coloured red and adhered with foam dots. The sentiment is a Waltzing Mouse sentiment.

Timi’s Tag

I really liked today’s technique with the kraft glassine and luckily I had all the supplies except for the die.

It was easy to decorate this tag with all the bits and pieces. I used a Christmas sentiment, but this was the biggest I had, but I still think a bigger one would be nicer.

Let’s see what he will come up tomorrow!
