Tag 2

And here is TAG 2. Everyone has scrambled madly yesterday to get his/her tag uploaded and to enjoy all the tags made around the world and viewable with inlinkz. (Why don't we rename that to INKLINKZ for the duration of Tims 12 Tags?!!) Take a look at Tims tag 2:
Gorgeous isn't it? Cute reindeer! But I had to find another shape. So I went with a christmas tree. I used only Art Journey stamps today. From the sets "Noel", "Men" and "Christmas Tree". The background paper comes from a (cheap!) paperblock. I used it because it had some embossed snowflakes.
No distress stain picket fence here, in fact I have no distress stains AT ALL! So I substituted some paint dabber snowcap, liberally watered down on my craft sheet to make the transparent white layer. Made some white pearl mist in a minimister and sprayed that on my hand so I could flick droplets.
I decorated the tree with a green ribbon which I covered in stickles holly. And the brads were white. I colored them with alcohol ink ginger in a plastic bag.
Well, there you have it: my take on tag 2. Here are some details for you to enjoy!

A little branch on the Art Journey "Men" set becomes a holly branch when colored green and stamped mutiple times. See the delicate white snowflakes? That stamp comes from the "Noel"set and I stamped it with frostwhite.
The ribbon is colored with watered frayed burlap distress ink on the craftsheet. I crumpled it and let it dry. A little piece of vintage lace, colored the same, is my substitue for the piece of burlap on Tims tag.
Details of the green ribbon with the stickles holly the embossed snowflakes and the brads. I just wrapped it around the tree. See the frayed edges of the stickyback canvas on grungepaper? I colored the tree with old paper distress ink and stamped a darling christmas tree from the Art Journey "Christmas Tree"set on it. The brads were punched with a pointy screw! See the difference in coloring on the brads? That happens when you just let alcohol ink dry naturally.
See you tomorrow!

even the littlest comment is greatly appreciated!
