12 Tags of Christmas - day 6. I'm using bright colours!




Day 6 and I wasn't sure what do when I first saw the image. But after reading Tim's blog (Oh I enjoy reading it as much as being inspired by the pictures) I thought of the embossed tins of biscuits we used to get at Christmas when I was little - such a treat! So, I decided to try and create a richly textured metallic effect.

 Yet again, I had none of the right supplies but found some lovely heavy quality Mirri card in a really unusual shade and a free embossing folder from a Docrafts magazine. I debossed some card and then embossed another piece. My daughter and I coloured in with Sakura pens trying to use similar colours to Tims design. I cut one out and stuck it onto the tag and then added a glittery trim and a snowflake - Ta Dah!

What a beautiful tag...it reminds me of the great tree in NYC! The colors are fabulous and I like that you took it slightly off the page. Kudos!

Exquisite effect! I love the resourcefulness you employed here too. It has such an elegant simplicity to the design that using many of the texture fade folders can't achieve. Brava!!!
