12 Tags of Christmas .............Day 6

Well here I am again with day 6 of 12 tags of Christmas half way on this fabulous journey and  I have managed to do this tag on day 6!  I have had a fabulous crafty morning and really enjoyed myself.
I have to omit that during the process I thought .....this look very bad..... and I had started to doubt Tim ...I know me doubt the master himself.....sorry but I did as all I could see at that time was a painted mess.......anyway I proceeded with the Tim's tutorial and am very pleased with the result.  I will definitely be doing this again think it would be great for the men in my life...DH and DS in case you were wondering...lol.

I wish you could see the enamelled look that this creates, photo does not do it justice at all, all those doing tag will know it really does look  and feel like an old painted enameled sheet of metal...... fabulous technique. 
I have used whatever I had in my stash I only had small sheets of metal so I embossed twice and put the design together on the tag. For the paint I used dabbers in several colours. I used a idea-ology pin to attach the painted metal wreath as I don't have a drill!!  I will definitely be doing this technique again.
This tag will be a Christmas tag for DH and I maybe back later with a Christmas card for him using a different embossing folder.......still work in progress.

bye for now
