12 Tags of Christmas 2010 - Day 7

I've put a stickie post up with an attached thumbnail linky thingy for anyone who wants to play along with the Splinter Group again this year!
I thought we all could add a link to the specific blog post of each tag and then it will make it easier to hop around to share the joy LOL

Here is my tag for today ;)

Today?...Today I  was not going to be defeated! LOL
...I had sticky canvas wooo hooo! :)
...used DI's to colour the canvas and Tattered Angels sprays topped off with the gorgeous Ranger Perfect Pearls Pearl spray....don't think the rock candy distress seems quite blingy enough might add something else later ;)
....because I don't have the embossing folder...or indeed an embossing machine to emboss it with!! I just used a ball embossing tool on the tag over a pricking mat to get the woodish look...not as eye popping as the T!m version...but it's my version!
...because of this the background took more colour than T!m's and I did not want the flourish to be as dark or it would have got lost so there is hardly any inking on it!
I used an Artistic Stamper mini calligraphic script stamp for the T!m letters that Joanne kindly gave me. :) Thanks

....Keep having fun ;)
....and.........Keeeeeeeeep stamping!

To celebrate the amazing tags being shared from all over the world
Jennie The Artistic Stamper is going to add more prizes to the pot as well as the original goody bag full of T!m stuff to some lucky people who share a tag using the linky post.
..so the more tags you share the better your chances are :)
This will be drawn by random after the end of T!m's 12 Tags of Christmas.
....is that not super generous? :)
Thanks Jennie! More about that from Jennie herself over on her blog.

DON'T FORGET that during the 12 tags of Christmas she has a special offer on for everyone who orders at the web shop just type in the word "12 tags" in the coupon voucher box at checkout and you will get 12% off!
