12 Tags of Christmas : Day 8


This is so NOT me - but I love it and really enjoyed the challenge.  This is what taking part in the 12 Tags is all about - stretching yourself inventively and trying different styles.  I was amazed that I did have quite a few of the right things as well.  It is a very dark day here today, gale force winds and driving rain/sleet/snow.  Pretty horrible!  so the photographs are not as great as they might be.  (I have to get finished before midday, or I can't get a good photo being so far north!).


For my background I used Distress Inks:  Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage and Forest Moss with a little bit of Broken China.  I also did a white emboss resist as I had no White Paint Dabber.  I also only had Copper Paint Dabber for the cogs and clock and it is a bit bright, the gold looks good, so that is now on my list of "must haves".  I did position things a little differently as I felt you couldn't really see everything.  I was also very pleased to give this chap an airing - one of my favourite Crafty Individual stamps, but I often can't think of a way of using him.


I hope you have as much fun today as I have!  To see Tim's actual tag, click HERE.  And click HERE for the Inspiration Emporium blog where there are some great entries each day.


I am also linking this tag into the Grungy Monday 29 Challenge over with Linda at Studio L3.  Click the link HERE to see some wonderful entries.

Wow Jennie, Saw your "Tag" over at Tim's and I thought it was stunning.
It was the first time I have ever made a "Tag" from Tim's blog, so was really pleased with the outcome, but loved your tag. Debbiexx

Very pretty steampunk tag! The man in the middle looks so funny with his hat on!
I've been here before, but was so focused on the tags, and now I took the time to look around on your blog. You makes very beautiful things. Just became a follower!
