Tim's Tags Day Two

Hope you're all having a good weekend so far folks and I have my second tag for Sir Tim's 12 Days of Christmas Tags to show you. This time because I had to wait for our lovely sunshine to disappear to get a good pic as I didn't finish the tag until late last night.
I again had to do loads of improvising which I think has largely been caused by the fact that my Christmas supplies only get seasonal use so I try to do different things year on year to make my purchases last as long as possible to get the value out of them. As a lot of the supplies on the tags are new this year, that's why I don't have them as my craft purse is unfortunately not bottomless lol

Improvised supplies for this tag:
No Kraft Resist so used vintage music score dry brushed with white paint then stamped with holly (Papermania) and Christmas (Inkylicious). I also sponged on Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive as I felt more colour was needed.
Snow make using a splatter stamp and white paint.
Deer is thick card rather than canvas and was inked with VersaColour Sand Beige, Umber and Cocoa
I added a bell and a holly garland made from punched holly sprigs.
I tried to use hessian at the top but it disintegrated on me! Ribbon used instead.
I added a little plaque made with a Craft Stamper free stamp (December issue)
The bottom border is a Martha Stewart punch with blingy ribbon added for some glitz.

To see the gorgeous original tag and all the instructions please click on Tim's Tags 12 Days of Christmas Day Two to be transported over.
I'm also linking once again to Inspiration Emporium which is worth a look if you haven't yet done so as there are prizes on offer.

I'm off to work on Day 3 now which will be even more of a challenge as I have none of the supplies!
Happy crafting,
Fliss xx
