Tag 4 - Twelve tags of Christmas



Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. My version of tag 4 of Tim's twelve tags of Christmas and a bit of a marathon too, the rock candy crackle seemed to take forever to dry but it was worth the wait, I think it looks lovely after the addition of the distress stain, very sparkly under artificial light too. Stamping with the distress stains gives a lovely water colour effect, I'll be doing that again. Once again I didn't have the dies apart from the 25 so I've used a bauble die and for the acetate edge a strip die which I cut to fit, I like the white paint on that too which gives a pretty wintery feel, lots of good techniques from Tim on this one which I enjoyed trying out.

Back in a minute with tag 5 that I've managed to get done on the same day :D!
