Horrah, how good it feels when you create something, even more so when you are inspired by a blog and make do with what you have or can purchase.
I have been pondering Timmy's December tag for a few weeks since it was published and wondering whether I could make do without a Poinsettia die - I think not. But could I get his one - I think not. So I ended up with the Poppystamps one which I bought today at The Craft Barn. It had shown as "sold out" on the web but I spotted it in a curious basket under the counter and asked and yes it was awaiting being put out. Hurdle ONE.
I didn't have any of the film stuff and my die was a thin one anyways so I opted for vellum and distress inks which worked a treat. I also used a tag I had previously (in another life as it was so long ago) embossed and "golded". Not a Timmy stencil to be had at the shop either so I used my Dylusions one. I had a Christmas token hanging around so added that too and some string from one of the tags from my décopatch items.
Oops just spotted I need to add some white paint - hope I don't spoil it with a splodge...............
Phew, tag survived but my laptop got a liberal dusting of white paint - how festive - LOL.
