Twelve Days of Christmas 9 - Oh Little Tree
Wow - I was so blown away by the techniques in today's installment of Tim Holtz's blog that several hours into playing with the new techniques - and making funky little samples, I realised that I hadn't actually made a tag at all! So this one was made in a happy rush.
I have just remembered, I have a set of Basic Grey Stamps with a great tree branch and owls...ooh hurry up tomorrow! So many tags, so little time.
My photo doesn't do this justice at all and I have no editing software. Never mind - it is very sweet in 'Real Life' I don't own many background stamps, but used Fired Brick, Vintage Photo (my favourite of my little collection) and Peeled Paint Distress inks, clear Embossing Powder and Ranger Black Embossing Powder to create the upper part of the tag. The stamp is one of my favourites - it is from Hobby Art Ltd. The photo makes the top of the tree look more orange than the original.Lastly, I added a mix of Diamond and Rock Candy Stickles onto the tree -they/re still wet in the picture, I was too impatient to wait for them to dry!
I hope you are enjoying the 12 Days of Christmas - I'm loving it!
I hope you all have a great weekend. Anna x
