10 done ..... only 2 more to go

Hello again!

It's time for Tag number 10 for Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas event.  I've had so much fun playing along this week ..... it's a shame it's all coming to an end (sigh!) What am I going to do next week?!! 

Today's tag is all about the Festive Gent .......

Tag #10
I love this Tim Holtz die!

He's been cut from black cardstock, and then his scarf has been cut again from a piece of red, and layered over the top.  I then sprinkled him with a little chunky white embossing powder, to give the look of falling snow


The background has been done using Distress Inks, and those favourite Clarity trees again, and I added a festive greeting to the bottom.


To add a bit more texture to the background I used a stencil along with some dimensional paste across the top and the bottom of the tag ....... more falling snow!

I attached the gent to the tag using foam pads and then added the cute little wreath.


Two more tags to go ....... they are made (yeah!!) I just need to take some pictures and then I'll share.
I've got until the 16th so no need to panic just yet.

Well that's me done I think.  Today's tag shared - check!  Dinner's out of the way, and the washing up done - check! .... ok dishwasher's loaded and switched on!  The little man is bathed and in bed - check!  not an easy task this evening I might add ........ he put up a bit of a fight!!


It was Super Hero Day at pre-school and I had the job of getting this one clean ....... Spiderman, no problem for SuperGran!!

I think it's time to relax, put my feet up and catch up with some TV.  Hubby's out this evening, wetting his work colleague's baby's head ....... so I won't be seeing him this side of midnight!!

Thanks for popping by ..... I'll be back tomorrow to share my last two tags with you.

Cheerio until then

Linda

  3. Hi Linda. Another stunning tag! Love the snowy scene with your hills and stamped trees. Makes for a fabulous background to show off the silhouette of the gent. Great texture from the falling snow and wreath. Your little guy is so adorable ... bet it was a bit of work to get the spider webs off his face :) Loll xx

  8. Well isn't this just another fabulous tag! I love your festive Victorian gent! His wreath is fabulous, love the scenery he is walking through too. Your grandson is adorable and I just love his make up for his "mask". I bet that was fun to clean off, yes, I think you deserve to put your feet up and relax! Hugs, Brenda
