Simply Retro ..........

Day 11......12 tags of Christmas

Here is my tag for Day 11 I loved the simply retro look of this tag  it reminds me of my childhood in the '50's..... yes now you know how old I am ish!!! rofl :-()
The main event for this stamp was a cool technique with the melt pot and shrink plastic...have melt pot but shrink plastic....well it is here somewhere but I couldn't find it anywhere so I improvised..... will go back to that technique when shrink plastic comes out of hiding....or when I buy some more!
I have kept it simple as Tim's was not owning those stamps and they aren't my style really anyway but perfect for this look, I used Tim's stickers and mounted onto card and cut out, inked edges with vintage photo and mounted onto foam pads.  Background as Tim's only I got a snow blizzard rather than a light snow falling.....


Top corner my improvised embellishment is foliage cut from die and covered in glossy accents to give the shine and ranger dimensional pearls in cranberry for berries.....this is why I couldn't post yesterday as my glossy accents were not dry .

It is a sad but exciting day today as the last tag is super fabulous and just up my street but it is the last day for 12 tags of Christmas....... :-(  so I'm off to play and do Christmas things in between drying times!

Will be back later with today's no.12 tag

bye for now
