12 Tags of Christmas : Day 5
Day 5 of the Tagathon and another great technique. Click the link HERE to go to Tim's blog and details of how to do today's tag and to view everyone's amazing entries. And HERE for the Inspiration Emporium blog and again some wonderful entries.
I remember doing this resist technique during last year's 12 Tags and was amazed how well it worked although I only did it on a small fragment. This time it was the whole tag!! Amazingly I actually had all the right alcohol inks, but I think my plastic was a bit thin and my stamp a little bit too detailed (I have no text stamps of a good enough size and with a Christmas sentiment). The stamp was also a bit small for the tag, so I had to improvise and "dress it up" a bit. And with no wreath die I made my own from the Autumn Gatherings die. I was tempted to colour the gems red again (love that technique), but time was against me.
Nearly half way!
