Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas - Day 6

Well, ok so I couldn't not try in the end.  Thanks to some inspiration from the tags already linked at Artyjen's splinter group, (and mainly Sioux's herself) -  I came up with this for Tim's Day 6 tag.

I stamped the trees in a mixture of bundled sage and pine needles, then over-stamped in clear embossing ink and clear embossed them for a bit of texture/depth. The flourishes are just stamped as I have no folders that I could use.
The colours show a little better in this one - this is scanned, the one above is with the camera.

The reindeer is stamped on grungepaper, put through an embossing folder and inked in aged mahogany.

I made the greeting with Wendy's stamp, but my fired brick must need reinking because it didn't emboss properly, so I covered the whole think with clear ink and powder and embossed it again.

Hope day 7 - already halfway!! - has some elements I can use properly!

Got to go to bed now, it's past my bedtime and I am tired after my day back at work!!

See you tomorrow.

Ooh - meant to say, if you've no room to put a tree, what about decorating swags and hanging them around the walls?

Morti said...

Hmmm - seems the previous comment didn't work, that last one wouldn't make sense without it! I'd said how amazing it was that Drs work so late these days, and that your tags were fab. Oh, and thanks for stopping by!

LOL
