Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas - Day 11

So, here we are - just one more Tim tag to go - here is day 11 - snowflake die (don't have it) tree die (don't have it) custom making stamps with foam (don't have any) dictionary paper - you get the drift  ....... but - never let it be said I give up.

So, first off I used a book page and did the snowflake stamping - page was too old and yellow - started again on the other side of the tag - found a book (an old "Good Pub Guide - 1985...) with whiter pages and tore one out.

The snowflake stamp is from a clear set of Inkadinkado stamps, inking is as per Tim's tag.

Running low on ornate plates so found a chip frame that fitted the stamp - it's from an unopened pack by K and Co - painted it with silver dabber and sanded it for a distressed look. The flash is still bouncing off the silver paint though...
 The tree is from Wendy's Christmas set, stamped on grungeboard and inked with green distress inks, don't have any green distress powdeers so it's just embossed with green powder (from the back of the drawer of embossing powders, these tags are making me rummage so much!!) but the trunk is done with distress powder!  No sparkly stuff so painted some of the branches with white dabber and pressed fun flock into it. (had trouble finding that again too, didn't remember where I'd put it back from the other day when I used it before)
Could manage the philosophy tag, although I'd used the "believe" one yesterday! Linking it at Artyjen, as with the others. There are some fab Day 11's there, to go with the others.

Well done Helen for improvising and keeping up with all the tags. I think it's great having a good rummage using stuff that would otherwise be left in the cupboard. Take care. Tracy Evans x x
