When I woke up this morning and saw Tim’s day 11 tag I thought, great, that’s nice and simple. Then I sat down at my desk and realised I didnt have anything Tim had for his besides some ink and card for a tag! I cut out my tag and covered with paper from a book. I had a snowflake stamp so I stamped that with a pearl dabber and clear embossed it. I then inked up my tag with the colours I wanted. Then I started trying to make trees. I drew a few out onto paper but none seemed to work on the tag. I was sitting staring at my desk and my eye fell on a left over snowflake from when I was die cutting them the other day. I cut it in half and thought the arms of the flake looked like branches. Hmmmm… So out came some brown scrap paper for a trunk, and green scrap paper for some snowflakes. I cut them all in half and placed them on the trunk/tag in what hopefully looks like a tree! I added pearl paint for snow on the branches but that didnt photograph too well. Do you like my star on the top of my tree? Its from a broken charm bracelet and is actually a starfish!! This tag is full of improvising 😀
I cant believe there is only 1 day left of the 12 tags. Time flies when you are busy making trees out of snowflakes!! Again I am linking up to the splinter group over at ArtyJen and on the Crafty Alley Ning!
