DAY 11

DAY 11
Phew nearly there, this tags been a bit of an experiment and, well, I like it
The background is a crumpled tag with burlap and spiced marmalade brushed across the folds and the flattened.
The rossette is a strip of Anitas christmas borders which was scored every cm on one side then turned over and scored every cm on the other side in between the other scores. I then folded up the paper backwards and forwards to make the crinkles.
I needed to trim a cm off the top and bottom of the papaer because it was too big at this point. I stuck the 2 ends together I gently flattened so the rosette formed
Next I stamped a circle onto pearl red paper and stuck this in the middle. A 2 and a 5 die cut on the top completed the tag.

DAY 10

Day 10 and on a roll now
This is a fantastic tag!! Right starting with the background frayed burlap and ancient paper softly brushed all over and then swirles stamped in spiced marmalade.
A matching Christmas ribbon was then wrapped around the middle.
On a distressed piece of paper I stamped the reindeer in frayed burlap and cut out and stuck ontop of the ribbon.
A die cut branch was added and differnt size and shades of cream and white pearls were added to simulate mistletoe. Finally a red pearl for an eye was added.


Day 9
This is not a good scan of this tag it has mega sparkle!!

Yes ok I'll hold my hands up spiced marmalade background again lol, with frayed burlap blended background
Stamped Peace on earth and a bauble using black stazon.
I also stamped the bauble onto purple paper which I cut round and decoupaged ontop of the stamped image on the tag.
The bow image I filled in with clear stickles glitter glue.
I added 3 saphire gems as lights and drew sparkles out from them with the glue, the scan doesn't show the sparkley effect.


Ok let's move on swiftly to day 8 and this tags' a bit tounge in cheek as a person 50 plus and therefore a member of the RED Hat Society
So here we have a very lightly spiced marmalde ( yes I know i just love this ink pad) to give a bit of a glow, few leaves left from previous project accented with a few pen lines to simuate movement. I die cut 2 white circles and 1 purple one.
I cut a segment out of the purple circle to make a coat and accented with red stickles glitter glue for the buttons.
I sizzix die cut bow in red check forms the scarf, hightlighted with white stickle for frosting.
And on the top a punched hat, decorated with sequines, I penned in eyes and a smile, with black pen.
The whole tag was tounge in cheek fun.


Ok Ok so now I'm way behind, not been to well is my only excuse but we are going to catch up fast so hang on tight here we go!Isnt this fabby am well pleased the way this turned out. Job no1 was to prepare some card with pesto, aubergine, tawny copper and butterscotch sprays ready to punch out the leaves and vines with sizzix and marianne dies. The background is spiced marmalade lightly swirled with frayed burlap. I layered up the leaves and topped with a Quickkutz embossing dies brushed with ancient paper to pop out the embossing on the dove and topped off with a few feathers here and there, and job's a gud un!

Day 6

Yes yes I'm early, but I'm out tomorrow tutouring some messy play with sprays! So its here early
and what a beaut! The scan doesn't do it justice cause the pearls are not shown at their best. Some of them are matt and some have a wonderful sparkle.....anyway here it isRight we have a tag lightly covered with aged mahagony and bundled sage. Next a stamped pair of corners in Olive stazon. A die cut in a soft pearly green from marrianne dies was added across the middle. White paper roses and wonderful pearls finished the job.............beautiful tag rubbish scan

Day 5

Here we are almost 1/2 way there, my gosh time is flying anyway here's todays little gem and I like it......wot its not pants I hear you say....well no its not its rather good lol

We have a tag coverd with aged mahogonay and the phrase from See D's angel stamps, stamped in black stazon. I stamped the angel on a seperate bit of paper with the black stazon and coloured with chipped saphire and stream blended together. A torn piece of parchment with latin gold writting on was added and the angel over the top, the tag was finished with 2 antique celtic gel stickers.............really lush this one
