Tag 8

You probably thought I had forgotten todays tag! Well no, but I had to work the whole day because my colleague is sick. She is on the mend but still couldn't come to work yet.
I must say I don't really like everything about Tag 8. It has to much different random elements to my taste.
I like it better when Tim is using all kinds of inking techniques and embellishments that complement the technique used. He is so creative when it comes to combining colors! Here is my take on tag 8:
That's right, I made a card! Look at all that white space! I tried to keep it clean and simple while still using some of the techniques of tag 8. Here are some details for you to enjoy. I'll explain how tag 8 inspired me.
A bunch of red beads from three red berries. Inspired by the texture of the holly leaves and red stickles Tim used for berries on the men's hats. The little flourishes were colored with vintage photo distress ink and covered with a bit of copper stickles. Inspired by the metal elements on tag 8.
I embossed the fabulous flourish from Hero Arts and used it as a resist with barndoor red and peeled paint. Inspired by the resist technique on tag 8 in the background.
Black embossed word. I tought DREAM would be appropriate because I dreamed this card up while musing about all the different elements of tag 8! Besides, isn't christmas a time to dream? And aren't Tim's 12-tags inspiring you to dream about all his wonderful stamps and inks and.. and...
Huh...? What...? Oh sorry, I must have dozed off!
See you all tomorrow!

even the littlest comment is greatly appreciated!
