T!m's tags

Now every year I watch with envy as T!m does his tags, not feeling as if I could produce anything near what he does. But this year I thought sod it I will do them my way! I do not have many T!m products but thought I would try and improvise.

So here it is my first ever T!m's tag..........

Now I don't have the big tags he uses, mine came from smiths in a pack of 20, and I don't have the big house die but a friend got the house on the edge die a few weeks ago and I cut some to try it out. You never know when those odds might come in useful as the trees were cut last Christmas with a cuttle-bug die. I put the tag through the big shot with a snow flake embossing folder then coloured it with DI in weathered wood. The house was white card that I coloured with pumice stone, then covered with crackle glaze.The trees I put some paint and some flock on to look like snow. Stamped the word Christmas on to a Adage ticket then just put it all together. I think I didn't do to bad with what I had.

Thanks for reading,
 Cath

Fabulous tag and love all the improvising you did. Something I had to do too. Also think it makes those creative juices flow better.

Great tag, what a good idea using the edge dies for your houses. I didn't have any of Tim's stuff either.
