12 Tags Day 2 and 3

I have finally completed my tags for days 2 and 3 for Tim's 12 tags of Christmas  again I have improvised with a lot of things to make them using what I had and adapted them where needed. You will see that I have again followed Tim's tags unashamedly.... I like to do this as a reference for later when I can take inspiration from them when my mojo has gone away.....I do intend to make my own Christmas tags or decorations taking the inspiration from each day not sure how much will actually get done though........but the intentions are there lol.

Day 2

I used the same background paper using white paint over it as I don't have the white DI stain, Deer was cut from canvas I had bought on a roll ages and ages ago, which I glued to card and frayed a little, the green around the deer's neck was found in my stash it is like a tinselled pipe cleaner and think I bought them to craft with my grandson last year......it's great to rummage through your stash and find things don't you think...! Hessian was the same bought ages ago knowing I would need it some day.... I added bell from my stash and TH trinket.

Day 3

Lots of compromising here on this tag, I used embossing folder and embossed in different directions and then inked over with Distress inks to get similar effect Tim used on his tag. I don't have anything to make a custom stamp will have to look into it though as it looks great fun, I cut the foliage and added buttons, sparkly ribbon (not showing up in photo) from stash and bell is tied on with strand from the Hessian on tag 2 and curled again not showing up well the light was going and electric light is not good for photos.

I have nearly caught up only 1 tag behind now hopefully will get this done soon
Bye for now and enjoy the 12 tags if you are joining in.
