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.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
