TH #11 - November Tag

After alot of pondering this month, I have finally made my Tim Holtz November Tag. I had made a previous attempt a while back but that went decidedly pear shaped and made a trip to bin land!

My main stopper this month was the lack of a tall solid stamp to try the resist technique. In the end the trees came to the rescue and I was quite amazed at how the ironing lifted the embossing powder onto the scrap paper. I did wrap it all in grease proof paper as I don't have a craft only iron, so I hope that did the trick and my clothes don't end up.........no I'm not going down there!!

I had had my fill of Autumnal Tags as I did a few last month so I just had to do something different. I had picked up a little stamp of a leaping deer back in the Spring and thought my diecut deer could be dreaming of flying, hence the word "DREAM". With the blues, pinks and purples the sky ended up looking like the aurora borealis with a dusting of newly falling snow, painted on with my newly commandeered paint brushes of my son's as he doesn't use them anymore.

I'm really pleased with my tag especially as it was a long time coming for me.
