12 Tags of Christmas - Day 6

A BIG thank you to everyone for your warm wishes on my Stamper of the Year post....I promise I'll get back to you all individually just as soon as :)

Anyways it is day 6 and when I saw T!ms' tag this morning I thought hells bells! There was no way I could complete something just like that so......apart from the background!.....I've run with trying to get the feeling he was conveying instead.

Here is my day 6 tag.


Stamps used are Stampers Anonymous, We Are Memory Keepers, Papermania and Royal & Langnickel.........stamped and embossed the trees with verdigris and added Liquid Pearls white opal for the snow with a sprinkle of silver glitter on top before it dried.......stamped and embossed the houses in disco black firstly onto chipboard and secondly onto a bit of reject card from practising the tartan technique on day 3, then coloured parts with some gel pens...........didn't have any bingo numbers so embossed a chipboard 4 in disco black.......didn't have any stamps that said HOME so cut them out of grunge board and glittered with red...................stamped a flourish, the word Christmas and post card............

so as you can see it is absolutely nothing like T!ms but I like it and that is what counts! LOL

Thanks for looking

P.S. I have a big problem with tearing up old books! So I scanned a page that included the definition of home and printed it out on paper!

Fabulous tag. I love your take on today's tag. Your houses look so cute, love the sparkle & your red - home word looks brilliant. It reminds me of Dorothy's shoes out of Wizard of Oz!

Well Done for keeping up to date. I've finally blogged 1 & 2!

Hugs Gez.xx

excellent take on old tims tag

Well. I prefer yours. Yes, I've actually managed to catch up with Tim's tags and although they are gorgeous and very Tim-esque I love yours. The houses on this are lovely. I will try and get something done but I think I shall just pick my favourites and have a go with those and like you they will be on a theme!!! The text background is something I definitely want to try.
Can't wait to see what you do tomorrow.
