Tim's Tags Day Four

Afternoon folks from a very chilly, wild and windy South coast. We've got sunshine again but the wind is so strong it's really cold. Hoping you're all having a good week so far and I'm here with the next of my versions of Tim's 12 Days of Christmas Tags Day 4 which I really enjoyed making as the techniques on this one are messy but great fun (I have very blue fingers at the moment lol).


Improvisation list:
I only had the Picket Fence Distress Stain so used Broken China and Tumbled Glass DI re-inkers and ended up with quite a similar effect although brighter
The snowman has Weathered Wood and Stormy Sky Distress inks instead of the stains used by Tim
The numbers were made with a strip die, inked, stamped and Glossy Accents added
Punched snowflakes from kraft and glitter card as no border die and my punch wouldn't go through the plastic packaging I have
Thread and silver weave ribbon as no tulle

I think I enjoyed this one the most due to the techniques as it's a while since I used crackle paint and I loved the background even without all the Distress Stains. I'm linking this up over at Tim's 12 Days of Christmas Tag 4 and if you haven't seen the original it's a must!

I'm also linking to Inspiration Emporium which is worth a visit for Tim's supplies.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting,
Fliss xx

  2. Brilliant tag again Fliss,love the snowman's scarf. Are you sure the blue fingers are from the crafting and not the weather,suffering a chilly spell here in Surrey as well.

  3. Not blue fingers due to the cold, or I hope not although it is definitely getting much colder.
    Your tag brings that sense of the cold with the icy colours - Brrrrrilliant! I couldn't resist that one Fliss.
