So there is till the 8th of Januray to play along yet...if I can make iit...so can you ;) .
So here is Linda's gorgeous tag #6 and below is mine...inspired by the plaid effect and the fir trees.
Well I wanted to mimic the plaid to a certain extent and used one of Tim's fab stripes stencils and my much loved iced spruce to create that sort of effect in a softer manner..I was really pleased with how it turned out...great except I was scared stiff as to what to do next in case I messed it up!
So I added some stamped fir trees in iced spruce using stamps from reindeer flight, gosh I do love this stamp set..When dry I edged with iced spruce. to complete the background I stamped some snowflakes using perfect medium, embossed with sticky embossing powder and added ....yes you guessed some clear rock candy Distress glitter...
Now for the tree, for which I can take no credit as I totally copied Linda's.
I added a little canvas reindeer, edged in frayed burlap...
some cheesecloth dyed with distress stains...to create a snowy forest floor.
I know that these are all soft colours but i just love how you can still get the different layers and textures...
Finally at the top I added some idea-ology and some dyed seam binding..I really loved making this tag and love the simple calmness it seems to have to me anyway!
So I will be linking this up to Linda's 12 tags
