Christmas Tags.....

Grungy Monday 26
Sunday Stampers week 180
 2 posts in one today, I had some time to myself so off I went to the little room of craft and got inky and had a fabulous time...... talking of time I have only just made GM with hours to spare I missed last weeks and was determined to play this week so while I was inky I got another tag made for Sunday Stamper challenge.

Firstly GM 26 Linda asked us to follow Tim's 12 tags of Christmas Tags 2009, day 7  how could I refuse.... now I did make a few adjustments but really I followed Tim's  except for the paint dabber in a different colour as I have run out of white.  Great technique and I really love the way the background just pops.  Thanks again Linda for a fab week....... hope Tim is doing his 12 tags again this year as I actually did all 12 last year  Yayhee !!!

I made my mask with a post it note and used paint dabber lake mist instead of the white everything else is more or less the same as in the video oh yes nearly forgot I used a holly sprig stamp instead of the snowflakes....can't really see them  in the photo but they are there.

sorry close up seems a little blurry.

Sunday Stamper challenge set by Hels has the title "Trail of the Lonesome Pine" to use Pine Colours/Pine Trees/Branches, so while humming this tune as by now it has stuck in my little grey cells trouble is I only know a few bars...........less said the better so onto tag,

I used TH embossing folder with Pine trees and inked over in peeled paint and pine needles DI and walnut stain around the edges, pine sprig was stamped in pine needles and vintage photo, I went around the edges of trees and branches with white pen as it had been snowing, by the look of the splashes I made I think a blizzard would be more apt....think I was a bit to heavy handed with the water!!  Tim's tape was added to the bottom edge and top corner, also a bell as before with some bakers twine in green.
Long post I know hope you made it to the end  with me..........thanks for looking

bye till next time


  1. Love both the tags especially the pine trees, I didn't manage to do Grungy Monday this time but will see what the challenge is tomorrow and will also be trying the lonesome pine challenge. Bye for now.

  2. Really like your tags! I love the lake mist on your tag it is very pretty.

  3. I love both tags! The lake mist is gorgeous and maybe I need to try a different color! Beautiful!

  4. I love both of your tags! So far I've resisted getting that tree embossing folder...I am thinking I might need it after seeing your tag!

  5. Love your tags Maggie. I think that pine tree embossing folder is one of my favorites.
