Hello Taggers, Crafters and Bloggers!!
I was lying in bed last night thinking that blogging is as addictive as re-creating Tim’s tags. It gives you the freedom to express yourself in a defined way.
I also realised what I want from Santa this Christmas and it isn’t two front teeth! lol!. I still have mine, thank G. so I am going to ask fro a new bl…. lap top! Mine keeps crashing on me right at the critical moment. I think it’s jealous of all the time i’m spending in my craft room lately lol!
Anyway on to Day 9. I actually finished this last night, but was too jaded to blog (after spending a lovely day in Galway yesterday with my family, shopping for a frock for my birthday party!!), so I left it till today.
Tim’s tag is here if you havn’t seen it yet and it’s fabulous! I love embossing so this was right up my street. Here is my tag
I followed Tim’s direction and used a Hero Arts background stamp (Birds and trees from the Sizzix / Hero Arts set) but I embossed with white embossing powder. I then inked all over with Fired Brick Distress ink and heat embossed with clear ultra thick embossing enamel. I took my walnut stain ink pad and blending tool and inked the tag again. I then added a lamp post black peel off, an alpha and die cut sentiment, a christmas tree brad and some trim Finally I added some gems to ‘Light up’ my lamp Post.
I wanted to keep it simple, focusing on the sentiment! I titled this tag ‘Lighting The Way With Hope and Love’, which I have wrote on the back.
Thanks for visiting,
