Tim Holtz 12 days of Christmas tags Day 8


Oh, didn't like this one at all. I had to draw and make my own mask, and in paper is was very difficult to ink it up properly. The whole thing ended up with a halo round it. Good technique, but only with the right stuff. I used a Crafty Individuals flourish stamp, and cut out some houses on card. Inked them up, and painted some puff paint on the top for snow. I didn't like the clock or photo corners so left them out, and put on a wooden Christmas tree instead. Not my favourite tag.

You criticise your work too harshly Wendy. It may not be as striking as the previous tags but it is still a fun design.

Wendy I heartily applaud you for being so creative at drawing and cutting out your own shapes, you are a better woman than me I can tell you. Brilliant work my friend. Annette x
