12 Tags of Christmas : Day 9
These 12 days are passing fast, only three more to go! I really loved today's technique of double embossing, it really makes for a fantastically distressed looking background. Having said that ....... I had a lovely red background (Fired Brick), but by the time it was embossed it looked a bit orange. Time to buy some of the seasonal DI inks I think! I just love the colours that Tim is getting on his tags. Click HERE to see Tim's tag and the details of how to do this technique.
I didn't have a candle die and looked at some of my other dies but couldn't think of a way of making them fit. I really liked the look of the candle, so I drew my own as all the fussy bits are covered by the wreath. I did cover my first candle with glossy accents but didn't like the look of it, so I made a second and just gave it a "drippy waxy" look at the top of the candle with the glossy accents.
Another great tag and I can't wait for tomorrow! Thanks to everyone who visited yesterday. I managed to find some time yesterday evening to visit blogs, but with storm force winds the power was coming and going a bit, so the broadband link wasn't great. Still windy today but now with snow ..... thankfully I am tucked up nice and warm.
See you all tomorrow.
