Day 7 - 12 Days of Christmas

Vintage Tag
I was on  Tim's blog early this morning  in fact 3 mins after he had blogged today's tag eager to see Day 7 and I wasn't disappointed a fabulous vintage tag .... well I was up early as we had a Christmas shopping trip planned and the wind and rain was lashing on the window which woke me earlier than planned -  we had a successful morning and we also managed to met up with DD in her lunch hour which was a bonus had lunch and then we returned home.  So this evening was my opportunity to get crafty yeah!  I don't have the holly die or the twig die so I left the twigs out and hand cut the holly from the kraft glassine paper ...which I inked with alcohol inks and gold mixative as Tim's video great effect only thing was my greens were a little too light I could have done with a darker one but I loved the effects just the same.

I have the kraft glassine for some time and not really played with it and the video shows some rally good techniques so will be trying those out too later well after Christmas I expect.  Background for the tag was made with DI frayed burlap and vintage photo as I don't have these stains stamp used was the music one off the mini holidays collection as was the greeting, lace was from creative expressions.
I have already said that I follow Tim's tags unashamedly I like to do this as I keep them for future reference when my mojo takes a holiday which happens quite often of late.  I managed to make all 12 last year and have referred to these lots of times when I need a spark to light my mojo.....lol.

Hope you are all enjoying this journey I know I am... for me it is a lovely piece of crafting time in the mad run up to Christmas... see you all tomorrow maybe!

Bye for now
