Winter Shabby.............

...........the final one!

Today is the last tag #12 I was very sad this morning and also very excited to see what the last tag would be I wasn't disappointed shabby vintage just up my street and instantly I found I had a new favourite lol .......Tim threw everything at this one and I had to improvise a lot as he used  products I don't have,  including tissue wrap see 12 tags of Christmas for all the details.

I stamped onto the tag and then used tissue from a serviette to stamp music onto and then applied to tag in the same way apart from the word "wish" everything else on my tag is improvisation.

I cut the deer from metal and then painted with white and sanded back to show the silver, flower was cut with music paper which I had covered with picket fence DI stain and I crumpled the petals while it was still damp. I added stickles to the letters...just because I could..... which left the top left a bit bare so I added a silver star from my stash.... finished tag #12.  I really enjoyed this one and it runs a close second to my favourite which was #2; I have completed them all now except #8 which I will get too soon.

It has been an amazing journey again this year and once again I have learnt such a lot, some techniques I will use again and again I'm sure. 

Thanks for all the comments they are always appreciated.
